Spiritual Conversation Curve

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.

The Eager Conversationalist/Spiritual Conversation Curve Workshops
The Eager Conversationalist/Spiritual Conversation Curve WorkshopsDrawing 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.
