This week my group talked to an atheist, a muslim, and a hindu.
I'm not here to debate people. I don't want to get into theological arguments or a battle of smarts, but I would like some help. I need people to brainstorm on ways to keep the conversation going if someone seems to be putting up a barrier by using their religion as a reason that they don't or can't believe what we're saying.
A lot of people our groups approach are nice and don't mind talking, but if they tell me they're (insert religion) my brain for some reason goes blank. How do I go from there without just saying, "Well you're wrong" and then turning them off to speaking to us completely.
Anything you have to say would be helpful!
