The art of the dialogue and the importance of being able to hold space for conversations in which perspectives may differ from ours is more important now than ever. It is essential for our growth that we are aware of our own internal biases, our limitations of understanding and why the walls of defensiveness rise up when hear viewpoints that we don’t agree. So what are the skills that are needed in order to have a productive conversation? How do we enter into meaningful dialogue with other? Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Dr. Ante Jeroncic profession of Ethics at Andrews University on the art of dialogue.
