It’s our post-Thanksgiving episode! Matt returns to share how he celebrates Thanksgiving with his Navajo family, including which food takes the central place of the traditional American turkey. He also educates us with a Native American fact to help us commemorate Native American Heritage Month. For the rest of our conversation, Matt and Tom discuss the topic of “Side A” friendship — that is, friendships with gay believers with an affirming theology or an acceptance of same-sex relationships. Matt mentions a new Side A friend, and Tom discusses his own recent experience with a Side A person, comparing it with a stilted interaction from over a decade ago. Has there been growth, and what does connection despite differing beliefs look like?

Do you have any “Side A” friends? How do you connect with people of significantly differing beliefs, or is it difficult finding common ground?
