Dave and Ann Wilson, the hosts of FamilyLife Today®, shared with Tim and Rick that they thought the rule, “don’t talk about politics or religion” would never apply to their family. But recently, even they have agreed not to tread those waters. Maybe you are also having trouble seeing “eye to eye” with your family, your church or your friends, and would love some practical suggestions on how to move forward with compassion and understanding.
In the two podcast episodes: “Hearing One Another” and “Seeing Eye to Eye,” Rick and Tim share practical speed bumps, listening techniques and healthy views on conviction types, that you can employ to have good conversations with empathy.
