Conversation Art CardsObserve and Listen. Share and Grow.
by Jane FoxConversation Art Cards were created by Bridges and initially designed for ministry with international students, initiating conversations on all dimensions of life and facets of experience. But for this very reason, they are effective in any ministry setting. The concept is simple: on the front of the card is a work of art that explores a crucial aspect of life and what it means to be human: love, parents, home, tradition, music, compassion, God, and other similar subjects. On the back of the card you'll find a series of thought-provoking questions to spark and steer the conversation on the painting's subject matter. As the very nature of the art, subject matter, and questions are personal and experiential, conversation flows naturally to deeper things, spiritual matters, and gospel content, providing multiple opportunities and avenues for talking about faith in Jesus Christ.
