Forward Friday: Start a Conversation

This weekend, try using the Bible as a conversation-starter.  As you converse with someone who does not agree with you, remember to:

1) Listen before you speak.

2) Learn from the other person’s perspective.

3) Be willing to be wrong.

4) Explore both the boundaries and the space between through your conversation.

5) Look for ways for the current conversation to spark future conversations as you build a relationship with your conversation partner.

Come back and share your experience with all of us.  Let’s learn from each other how to be conversation-starters.
