The purpose of Conversations is to provide spiritual accompaniment and honest dialogue for those who long for radical transformation in Christ. It stimulates hunger and illuminates the path by drawing on classical wisdom and practice, exploring the vital role of community, and illustrating the journey with realism and hope.

Conversations is published twice annually
in the spring and the fall.

We offer both a printed version
as well as an online/digital app version.
