what is a spiritual


For this campaign, spiritual conversations are conversations about God. They are conversations where we listen to what someone else believes about God (or gods or no God), or where we’ve shared something about what we believe about God.

If you follow Jesus, spiritual conversations will naturally lead you to talk about the difference he’s made in your life! But it is okay if you don’t get to unpack everything you believe, or if you don’t explain the full gospel; simply asking questions (and listening to someone’s answers!) are also spiritual conversations that we are encouraging in this campaign.


Spiritual conversations explore our worldviews, diving deeper beyond interests and values, to try to understand what we believe, and the difference those beliefs make to our lives.

Descriptive conversations that focus on things like the weather, what we did on the weekend and what we are watching on TV.


Prescriptive conversations that indicate preferences, ethics, values and beauty. We listen carefully here and say things like:

Can you tell me about that?

How did that make you feel?

World View

Conversations that indicate our understanding of the world. Here we make statements about what we believe.

What’s real? What’s wrong with the world?

Is there a God? Do you have a faith?

Do you pray? Is there life after death?
