What happened to civility in public discourse?

The Civil Conversations Project: Krista Tippett–FROM: Civil Conversations Project

We’ve seen so dramatically these past weeks how our political ways of speaking to each other, and about each other, have broken down. Krista has pulled together “six of their most important civil conversations from the past year, voices of wisdom, poetry, and practicality. They offer ideas and tools for healing our fractured civic spaces — beginning now, in our families and communities.”   Consider how you can change conversations you’ve been having in your own lives to allow new light to enter the picture.  Where do you see positive conversations happening? How do you see that you can be a facilitator of interacting in new ways? Add your comments, reflections and questions!  (Also see Bright Lights: “Words that Shimmer”, another in this series.)

As far back as the election of 2010, the Evangelical thinker and educator Richard Mouw put a fine point on what became an animating question for this series. I’d offer this as a fine question for our public life moving forward: Can we find new ways to treat each other, to live together, even while holding passionate disagreement? The hard truth is, we are not going to reach agreement on many of the issues before us any time soon.
