"Let the words of my mouth and
the meditation
of my heart be 
acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."

Why Dinner & Dialogue?

In today's busy world, time for meaningful conversation about what really matters in life is difficult. Jeff and Candy provide a simple home-cooked meal and a safe place to relax and talk openly. We seek to serve people who want to explore faith and/or discuss differences through dialogue,
not debate.

EXPLORE FAITH

To discuss answers to thought-
provoking
questions regarding
life and faith, such as:

  • Who is Jesus, and how 
    did I come to know Him?
  • Who or what is my source
    of
    truth for determining
    who Jesus is?
  • Is my source of truth reliable?
  • What relevance does Jesus
    have to my life, 
    now and for
    eternity?
  • What factors have most influenced my current
    beliefs about God?
  • In what ways do my
    religious beliefs impact

    the way I live my life?
  • What questions do I 
    have in regard to what
    the Bible teaches?
    _______________

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, 
the truth, and the life..." (John 14:6).

"And you shall know the truth and
the truth shall set you free" (John 8:32).

DISCUSS DIFFERENCES

Engage in life-changing conversations with people you disagree with, such as:

  • Controlling spouse, rebellious child, or irritating in-law
  • Co-worker with different view on social or political concerns
  • Friend who is an atheist,
    or person of another
    religion or denomination
  • Disgruntled employee
    or demanding boss

"Every man is a potential adversary, even those whom we love. Only through dialogue are we saved from this enmity toward one another. Dialogue is to love, what blood is to the body. When the flow of blood stops, the body dies. When dialogue stops, love dies and resentment and hate are born. But dialogue can restore a dead relationship. Indeed, this is the miracle of dialogue: it can bring relationship into being, and it can bring into being once again a relationship that has died."

Reuel L. Howe, The Miracle of Dialogue, p. 3
