I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Philemon 1:6

Getting to Know Each Other

9/29/13                 Regis and Jen                 30ish
Here’s a short clip of the beginning of a gospel conversation with a young couple that went on for another forty minutes.  It’s interesting to see their reaction because, although they have been dating for a year and a half, they had no idea about each other’s spiritual beliefs.  In my conversations with couples, groups of friends, or groups of co-workers who have known each other for years I have found this to be very common.  How could this be?  I suspect that, in the beginning of a relationship people don’t want to talk about controversial subjects like religion, so they avoid the topic.  Then, as they become more invested in the relationship and have more to lose, it becomes even more intimidating and difficult to start the conversation.  So I often feel privileged to help people talk to each other about a topic that is so important and central to their understanding of one another,  yet often so difficult to “break the ice”.  Here’s Regis, who is from Belgium, and Jen, as they discover something new about each other…           Regis and Jen
