Intimidated.  Yep…that was me when I first learned about Living Room Conversations.  After speaking with Joan, however, I have gained a healthy respect for learning how to have civil discussions about topics we might not always agree on.  Stop un-friending your “friends” on Facebook because you have a difference of opinion.  Stop losing family relationships and real life friends because you have a different political/religious/health view.  IT CAN BE DONE!  I don’t know that I was convinced of this until I tried what livingroomconversations.org suggests and hosted my own Living Room Conversation around food in my own home!  Listen to the podcast and see what I mean…I bet you that you will also realize the need for this in our homes, our friendships, our communities, our nation, and yes, even the world.
