Faith communities can be a “safe place for uncomfortable conversations.”  For example, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting, many congregations have embarked on a conversation about race, or gun violence, or stereotypes and profiling, or any of the host of issues underlying that situation.  The topics are uncomfortable because they make us confront our basic assumptions and unconscious prejudices.  But being willing to talk about them is the beginning of broadening our understanding, the first step to ever having the world be different.  With whom can you have “uncomfortable conversations”?
