TITLE: Conversing about Conversation
We seem to live in a time where people talk at one another, rather than converse. People who disagree will speak past one another, while those who agree find themselves trapped in echo chambers that they don’t even realize are there. And, yet, there is clearly a longing for more meaningful, constructive, and even challenging conversation. But what does this mean, and what would it look like? What exactly is a “conversation” anyway & why do they seem to have become more difficult in recent times? Can conversations really change minds, or actually be “transformational”? And, once we find ourselves engaged in them, what do we hope will come from them?
