Join Dave & John as they dialogue about how we can participate in creating a place for healing conversations to take place.
Pastor Dave Roberts shares about his new book HEALING CONVERSATIONS.
Dave Roberts is the lead Pastor for the Montrose Church which has made great waves in global communities with recent partnerships in Bolivia, Mexico and a current partnership in Eswatini, Africa. He earned his Master of Divinity at Nazarene Theological Seminary and began serving the Los Angeles Community in 1988. For over 30 years, he has been a practitioner of relationships, community building, and long-term partnerships. With a front row seat to the very real struggles faced by couples, families, and people, Dave has seen how the power of real authentic conversation transforms loneliness and divisiveness into genuine affection and connection. He brings years of practical help and support to people who long to connect spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and relationally. Dave currently resides in Glendale, California.
Healing Conversations brings to life the seven elements of how to have deep and fulfilling conversations so that people can connect in a world with many conversational obstacles.
Conversation is the way human beings connect. Great friendships are defined by the way one speaks, listens, and flows through the joy of effortless conversation. As the divisions in culture deepen due to politics, generational misunderstanding, the complexity of gender, the struggle to be politically correct, and every other possible human condition, conversation is becoming more and more dangerous. Most people feel an ever-increasing need to be careful with their words. It may be good to be thoughtful of language, but this is a new kind of carefulness. The anxiety of culture is leading people to communicate less and that leads to isolation and divisiveness.
Healing Conversations is a simple way to revolutionize communication. It offers practical help to allow readers to talk their way out of conflict and loneliness. Within Healing Conversations, Dave Roberts helps readers to learn, gain perspective, grow, accomplish real work, come together for a greater good, but even more, helps them to feel intimately connected to the people around them again through the power of conversation.
