Conversations of Consequence

Monologues are fine if we are listening to an enjoyable comedian or talk show host, but not in everyday life. Have you ever met someone who talks incessantly and never lets you get a word in edgewise? Their monologuing makes us feel uncomfortable and belittled; they are not interested in our opinions, only in expressing their own. So, we are not apt to befriend them and maybe even avoid them. On the other hand, most people enjoy dialogue—meaningful conversations in which each person finds common ground and shares ideas and viewpoints. Real learning happens when we meet others halfway and wrestle with concepts that are new to us. Conversations of consequence are always dialogues. In this series, apologist Michael Bossman leads us on a journey of learning how to engage in meaningful discourse about our faith.
