Conversations That Matter

Humans beings long to communicate.  Our conversations form the relationships that are the fabric of our society.  When we listen to others and express ourselves genuinely we can share what is most meaningful in our lives.  This on-going series of Conversations That Matter is intended to create a forum and to improve our communication skills so we can form and repair those relationships that weave us together as one people.
