A Congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Canada
If we really have good news, why do most Christians avoid evangelism? Why is “witnessing” often a negative experience, for both the sender and receiver? Wouldn’t it be great if we could communicate good news without having to become a spiritual salesperson?
You didn’t have to make a speech in order to “witness”?
you could use everyday experiences to nudge others close to Jesus Christ?
the things you’re already doing counted as evangelism
Evangelism can be as normal as asking great questions and paying attention to the people Jesus misses most. It involves doing things we already do, but with a little more intentionality. Just by being ourselves and becoming unusually interested in others, we can discover that people will ask us about Jesus.
Starting on October 16, we’ll be exploring Evangelism without Additives, a new series based on a book by the same name. Join us for three Sundays as we explore how to make real connections with people outside the church community. Then through the week, try a short daily prayer practice called S.O.A.P. that will help prime the pump making it easier for this to happen.
This isn’t about another program or pitch. Think of it as evangelism for the rest of us.
