The July 2021 Faith+Lead Book Hub “Tough Conversations: How to Have Them in Church and Keep Talking to Each Other” was focused on practical methods of engaging difficult topics in church. Authors Elizabeth Hagan and Rosalind Hughes coached participants in using biblical stories with the controversial topics, and some basic rules of engagement for conversations we know will be anxiety-provoking. You can see the discussion in the video below.

Elizabeth Hagan also wrote the blog post “Brave Conversations in Church” for The Faith+Leader, in conjunction with the event, which includes some practical ground rules.
