We know we’re supposed to love our enemies, but we’ve forgotten how. Political Talk helps us remember by awakening Christian practices we’ve already learned and empowering us to be faithful in conflict as we face political disagreements. Over ten weeks, we practice loving each other while engaging varying political positions.

Who is The Colossian Forum?

The Colossian Forum equips Christian leaders to transform division into opportunities for discipleship. We strive to foster a Christian community that acts Christian, especially in the face of conflict.

Lean In, Love, Lead

Political Talk is a Colossian Way series. An innovative method that helps us be faithful in conflict, The Colossian Way is practiced in small groups. Set in an intimate worship context, each session follows a structure that creates space for the Holy Spirit and an authentic formation experience. We face each other and our conflicts with courage and vulnerability.

Guide Your Church Through Division

Are you hungry to see your church find ways to forge fruitful lives amid conflict? The Colossian Way can help your church be faithful in conflict around politics or any other issue. Political Talk small-group series is full of practices to help Christians develop conflict engagement skills that translate into any context.

The Colossian Forum comes at a really important time. We have so much division in our society and division in our churches. There are difficult issues and we don't even know how to begin to talk about them.


What The Colossian Way curriculum did was provide practices that give you a much more creative, much more constructive, much more Christian possibility. Our shared Christian faith is our greatest resource."


That feeling of loneliness in the church dissipated, and now I feel fully wrapped and embraced by my church. The Colossian Way has opened up the church to me in a way that I never thought would happen.


Wouldn't it be incredible if the Church became known as a place where conflict was done really well? I think that with The Colossian Way, we absolutely could be.

Politics don’t have to divide us. Worship counteracts our temptation to treat others with contempt. It helps us see them as someone with a story, made in God’s image, just like us. With Political Talk, you’ll learn to navigate political disagreements with fellow Christians in positive, redemptive ways.
