What you’ll hear:

  • The importance of disagreement in relationships
  • The problem with processing disagreement as rejection
  • Why we need to examine motivation for engaging (or not) in a disagreement
  • When you do choose to engage, tips for handling the conversation with grace and guts
  • Reminder: we don't have the power to change people's hearts; only God can do that

Can I quote you on that?

  • "Where's there's friction, there's refinement." Maggie
  • "Sometimes the refinement comes from butting up against each other even if you don't ever come to a place of seeing eye to eye." Jacey
  • "Seek to understand more than to be understood." Jacey
  • "We're not sacrificing our beliefs by examining someone else's." Maggie
  • "Ask more questions." Maggie
  • "If we just unfollow everyone we disagree with, then we're creating these echo chambers where we can just be affirmed for our beliefs and never be challenged." Jacey
  • "One of my recurring prayers is for my blind spots to be illuminated." Jacey
