Even when we find ourselves deeply divided over politics, The Colossian Way proclaims our hope for unity in Christ. This hope for unity flies in the face of what we find in the political news, social media, and many face-to-face interactions. There’s a reason conventional wisdom says talking about politics will only drive us further apart. Moreover, some of us have to admit that, when we talk about politics, we’re tempted away from deep, loving truthfulness about the facts, the arguments, our political opponents, and ourselves. In this workshop, we will reflect on our current situation of political division, preview a new Colossian Way series on Political Talk, and seek God’s wisdom for using our political talk redemptively.
