The Arts of Spiritual ConversationsTM series helps ordinary Christians practice nine everyday activities that open a gateway for talking about God naturally with anyone. These practices reflect the way that Jesus interacted with people around him. Getting started is as simple as noticing, praying, and listening.

Like learning a musical instrument or a new sport, getting good at spiritual conversations means practice. It is not something you learn by reading a book or attending a seminar. Learning how to relate to people, especially with those who are different from you, calls for a change in your perspective. You need to experience it by incorporating new practices at a deep heart level.
The Arts are designed to help you do just that through rich content, insightful questions, and hands-on practice that can improve all of your conversations and relationships.

What is the Arts curriculum?
Three unique Arts resources provide options for getting the basics, going deeper, and getting your whole church on board.
Nine simple practices can change the quality and quantity of your interactions with people who believe differently. The Arts of Spiritual Conversations Basics series includes nine one-hour modules (one for each Art) and is available both in print and digital format with a variety of licenses to use in your small group, Sunday school class, or on your own.
Just as in sports or music, it takes practice to improve. The Arts of Spiritual Conversations Beyond the Basics series provides 36 modules, with four important sessions on each of the nine Arts, so that you can go deeper in the important principles of each practice, overcome obstacles, and continue to open the gateway for thriving conversations about God. See the full list of modules. The Arts of Spiritual Conversations Beyond the Basics series is available both in print and digital format with a variety of licenses.
Empower your entire church body to engage in meaningful conversations about God with people who aren’t coming to church. Use the Arts Leader Kit to integrate the Arts with a church-wide sermon series or to enhance the Arts curriculum in a class. Available in print format.
