(Not confessing sin to God; Not letting someone else know that they hurt you; dealing with conflict by bottling or stuffing it;  Not sharing the Gospel with someone;  Not speaking up when others are being hurt)  Which of those silent treatments are a struggle for you?  Why?  Read Colossians 4:2-6 Paul looked at verses 5 & 6 during the podcast.  In verses 2-4, what does Paul say is vital to us having grace filled, salty conversations with others?  What are some of the ways in which prayer can be so vital to our conversations?  With whom will you be having a conversation with that grace and salty will help that moment?  Why?
