This is a discussion that took place on December 12, 2016. John was a participant and it originally appeared on the Abundant Community website.
About every six weeks, for the last five years, John and Peter have hosted online / dial-up conversations with community-building pioneers as their guests. For their December 2016 dialog they decided to share some of their latest thinking and invite listeners to share their experiences in building new connections and relationships to strengthen our neighborhoods and communities.
John and Peter’s opening dialog was loosely organized around four questions:
What’s shifted in our thinking
What’s been confirmed
What gives us hope for the future
What are we worried about
In addition to the transcribed discussion here, some of the issues raised by listeners, and their responses to John and Peter’s dialog, were grabbed from the conversation’s chat box and are posted here. Download or listen to the audio here.
