Our group had a particularly tense meeting during the building phase, on a proposal that turned out to be a lot more controversial than anticipated (we've had some awful meetings, but that would make my top-ten worst list). It was the first meeting for a young couple investigating cohousing. Afterwards I ruefully said, "Well, _they_ won't be back, not after _that_ meeting." We were totally floored when they showed up at the next meeting. Months later I told the woman (now a valued neighbor) about our astonishment, and she told me that they had been very impressed by the way the group handled the differences of opinion and strong emotions at that meeting. It had reassured them, not scared them away. Kay Argyle Wasatch Commons
