Seven Conversations by Ed Chasteen

I’m bringing folks from five churches to Table of Faiths on Tuesday, April 21, as the first step in a larger purpose I have. I want to pair up folks of different faiths to have seven conversations over a seven week period using the seven sets of questions I will provide. Then each person will write the biography of the other from what they have learned. When all is done, we will hold a Human Family Reunion and each person will be inducted into The Order of World Class Persons.


An Invitation to Seven Conversations

from Ed Chasteen, PhD

The Pedalin’ Prof from William Jewell College

and Ambassador from Second Baptist Church to Other Communities of Faith

Text and Talk

Our focus is not on books and printed words but on individual persons and their spoken words. I ask only that you read one little book, just 144 pages. The book is called How To Like People Who Are Not Like You. A reviewer called this book “profoundly simple and simply profound, a formula for building human beings.” I wrote the book. Each of you who signs up for these seven conversations will get a free online copy.

Our moving closer to World Class Person is built around the seven conversations we will have with the person we are getting to know, using the seven sets of questions listed below. After each conversation, you will email to your person and to me the words you have written describing the words your person spoke to you. At the end of week #7 you will email to your person their biography as they have told it to you. You will ask for their approval. When you have it, you will email the completed biography to me.

When our spoken journey ends after seven weeks, we will gather at William Jewell College for a Human Family Reunion. We will all meet each other and each of us will be recognized as a World Class Person.

Signing up for these Conversations

To participate in these seven conversations, send an email to me at In no more than 150 words, tell me why you want to take part, what you hope to learn and the difference you think it might make in your life. Everyone who wants to listen will be accepted. Those who hold the seven conversations and proceed as described below will achieve the distinction of World Class Person and will be inducted into the Order of World Class Persons at our Human Family Reunion to be held at the Community Center in our town called Liberty.
