New research finds that Christians are less involved in spiritual conversations today than we were twenty-five years ago. As society has changed, it seems we have become more uncomfortable talking with people about our faith. We are reluctant conversationalists. The reality is that many of our churches and communities are shrinking instead of growing. What can we do about this? Unpacking what God's Word says about spiritual conversations and digging into the habits of eager conversationalists, our guest will describe what we can learn from Christians who are still talking about their faith.
