Kirstin, *culture is not optional co-director and catapult magazine editor, has an essay in the newest issue of Comment magazine, which highlights persuasion. Her piece, entitled “Slow Organizing for Kingdom Come,” explores community development as learning how to listen, persuade, negotiate, compromise, and reconcile — all toward the common good. Unfortunately, it isn’t available online; but with contributions from Marilyn McEntyre, Calvin Seerveld (from whom *cino gets its name), Nicholas Wolterstorff, James K.A. Smith, Allison Backous and many others, this issue alone is almost worth the yearly subscription.
