This episode is a little bit different. And personal. Kristyn Komarnicki, director of dialogue and convening at Christians for Social Action, and Darren Calhoun, a justice advocate, worship leader, and Associate Fellow at CSA, join Ron Steslow to discuss intentional dialogue, and how we can use their techniques in the relationships that matter to us.
(07:06) What is dialogue? How is it different from everyday conversations?
(8:19) What does a curated dialogue look like?
(20:23) How do you prepare for something like this?
(27:34) Why lean into conflict, even when you don’t like conflict?
(32:28) Political fights vs dialogue—what is our role in specific conversations?
(40:44) How important is "grace" in having dialogue that allows for growth?
