135. Let's Talk to People Who Make Us Nervous

Being listened to is so close to being loved that most people cannot tell the difference.

Some years back, This American Life discovered the singular work Jim Henderson was doing. Jim talks here with Christina Roberts and Dave Schmelzer about how he's an evangelist at heart, but how the most effective evangelism he discovered involves bringing together people across differences. He's written popular books and worked at churches small and massive (Jim talks about how such size discrepancies mostly reflect regional differences). But now, in our especially divisive times, his 3 Practices work along these lines draws interest from universities and elsewhere.
