The Spiritual Conversation Curve
This curve illustrates three spiritual postures people tend to have toward the Gospel and the six types of conversations that are most helpful for them based on their posture: either in gaining a hearing, giving good news, or guiding toward faith.
Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age Starter Kit
Discover the delight of spiritual conversations with tools, based on research from Barna, for your individual and congregational outreach. Each kit includes one Barna SCDA monograph, The Reluctant Witness book, workshop DVD, selected Project Connect booklets, 25 Curve Cards, and online course information.
The Eager Conversationalist/Spiritual Conversation Curve Workshops
Drawing on Barna Group data contained in the 2018 monograph Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age, Lutheran Hour Ministries is offering two workshops: the first, Eager Conversationalists, examines spiritual conversations. It offers insights to help us become more intentional-more eager-to engage in spiritual conversations with others. The second, The Spiritual Conversation Curve, offers help in getting past conversational hurdles. This is possible when we focus on someone's "spiritual posture," so as not to impose a conversation that's forced or ill-timed.
Spiritual Conversation Curve Cards
Use this card to help you consider how you can engage in faithful prayer and fruitful conversation with the people in your life who do not share your faith.
