Backstory Behind Stephanie and Guest

I met Adam through my friends at The Relational Center.  He of course had wine in hand.  His knowledge for wine is matched with his sincerity to bring people together in good times and conversation. He always has a great story to share and a smile on his face. Adam is great listener and good friend to talk about life and the pursuit of happiness. – Stephanie Michele

Social Challenge of the Week

Start an offline group.

If you are not already in a book club, bible study or small group that meets regularly, start your own. Why? Because the best way to process our fast-paced news cycle and consumption of content online is to go offline and talk it out with people you know and trust.

Some guidelines to consider:

  1. Invite people who have different options and political views.
  2. Set guidelines for “Respectful Dialog”  — no name calling, consider how to handle heated conversations beforehand.
  3. Meet regularly. (weekly, biweekly, monthly)
  4. Set an agenda. Let everyone submit 5 topics they want to talk about. Pick the most common five to start with and then address other topics as time permits.
  5. Be prepared to ‘fact check” as information is presented in discussions. A good resource for this –Snopes
  6. Start and end the get-together with everyone sharing what they are grateful for.
  7. Always thank people for sharing their points of view even when you don’t agree.
  8. Focus more on relating than debating — Asking questions for better understanding will help with this.
