Podcast: On the Objective – Defeating Divisiveness With Thoughtful Questions – Sam Johnston – 04.11.2019

2019.04.11

Join your host Steven Menking as he welcomes back Sam Johnston of The Sharpening Report to discuss dealing with the divisiveness we encounter in our society in this generation. Whether inside the body of Christ or in the overall fracas of social media, the polarization of language, platforms, and argument have left many of us in a situation where we would rather disengage from the conversation. Unfortunately, this mentality can extend into our most meaningful personal relationships. This conversation focuses on the importance of using language properly and various techniques that can help break down the barriers that have been built to prevent us from healthy dialogue. Thanks again for joining us On the Objective!

2019.02.11

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for an important discussion about the importance of conversation. Conversation is critical to creating and sustaining relationships with others as well as our own identities, but is there a way to have more meaningful conversations than the mundane exchanges we are used to? The consequences of not engaging in this pursuit can be significant, and hopefully your experience with us has helped you to develop the necessary tools to have more purposeful conversations and to appreciate the importance this endeavor holds. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Thanksgiving, Worldview, And Conflict – 11.19.2018

11.19.18

Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another conversation about being able to discuss worldviews. Challenging and even hostile conversations can often take place around the Thanksgiving table in the presence of family. For many, these times are successful if conflict is avoided, but the typical approach is to avoid any controversial subjects entirely. There is a productive approach that we can build to deal with these situations, and it requires being confident in our worldviews and being genuinely curious about our family members. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

Podcast: On the Objective – Conversations That Sharpen In A Dulling World – Sam Johnston – 07.23.2018

TSR

Join your host Steven Menking as he welcomes back Sam Johnston of The Sharpening Report to discuss the latest trends and dynamics in our nation. From the spiritual to the emotional, many core areas of our lives have been warped by events and media portrayals to the point where many conversations – even with loved ones – are simply not possible without inviting acrimony. How should we handle such situations? These times call for astute questions, soft answers, and bold proclamations of truth. A balancing of these factors must be guided by the Holy Spirit. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

Steven Menking – The Hagmann Report – 07.18.2018

sjm-thr

Join Steven Menking as he sits down again with Doug and Joe Hagmann on The Hagmann Report! In this segment Steven provides commentary following the Trump/Putin summit in Helsinki and the subsequent outrage. The dynamics of standing firm in conversation and maintaining the proper spirit are on the agenda as are some brief economic commentary and a couple jokes for a bit of levity. These are pivotal times, and if we allow ourselves to be swept away by the anger and vitriol that surrounds us then at best we will suffer from outrage fatigue and at worst the situation will boil over into more widespread violent conflict.
