EVANGELISM: FACT AND FICTION
Condemning or Caring?
Rev. James Anderson
As followers of Jesus, most of us have a wide range of stereotypes about evangelism, some potentially positive, many downright ineffective, inappropriate, or just plain awful. This is a problem since these negative images keep us from fulfilling Jesus’ call to proclaim the Good News and make disciples of all nations. Join us in exploring some of the facts and fictions about evangelism as we consider practical ways we can share the message of God’s love and invite others, as the Scripture says, “to taste and see that the Lord is good!”
We must meet people where they are. Paul in Athens is respectful of the insights and experiences of the Athenians as he invites them to greater understanding and the opportunity to turn with faith to the God of life.
