Welcome to the group!
This is a space where you can ask the pastor questions that you may have.
I ask that if there is conversation that you abide by these three simple rules.
1) Step up, step back. The conversation is made more meaningful the more people contribute so please, make your voice heard. That said, if you feel like you’re monopolizing the conversation, you probably are. No need to apologize, just step back.
2) Practice curiosity before judgement. Sure, that guy across from you may actually be a racist, misogynistic, homophobe. Then again, maybe the poor guy is just misunderstood. Either way, imagine all of the insights a few well phrased questions could reveal!
3) Practice messiness and non-closure. She’s not going to change her mind and it isn’t because you haven’t yet cited the right NPR story, so give it a rest. At the end of the night we don’t all have to believe the same thing. We are not clones.
