Crucial Conversations

Beginning this fall we will seek to foster honest conversations through a time of holy conferencing as we share different viewpoints and explore crucial issues for living a Christ-centered life in the 21st century. These conversations will seek to create a safe, comfortable atmosphere at Galloway for open and honest, constructive conversation on how we all may embody the love and grace of God as we explore hot topic issues in today's culture. Conversations will be facilitated by lay leaders in Congregational Care, Missions and Outreach and Adult Spiritual Formation.

Together we will equip ourselves for crucial conversations through training in communication skills, the study of Biblical and educational resources,and open and honest conversation. We will provide forums for high stakes conversations to be held both through small groups, Sunday School teachings, lectures and more. As we join in this new time of holy, Christian conferencing we will together find ways to disagree without being disagreeable, time to speak and to listen, and stop to celebrate who each of us is as a unique child of God.

FACILITATOR TRAINING: Saturday, August 15 and/or 29, 2015; 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.; Lunch will be provided.
