Navigating Your Conversations About God
Thursday 24 January 2013
Each of us as Christian ambassadors face two daunting challenges when trying to make a difference for Christ. First, how do we initiate conversations about spiritual things in a way that doesn’t seem awkward. Second, how do we keep ourselves from getting trapped or overwhelmed by others more aggressive than we are? In this talk, Greg will teach a two-step game plan that allows you to maneuver with confidence in any situation, no matter how little you know, and no matter how aggressive, powerful, or educated your opposition is. 'Columbo', derived from a popular American television character, is the simplest tactic imaginable to help you stop a challenger in his tracks, turn the tables, and then get him thinking. And it can be done in a gracious and winsome way. If you’re tired of finding yourself flat-footed and intimidated in conversations about what you believe, if you want to increase your confidence and your skill in discussions, no matter who you're talking to, this talk is for you.
