I recently finished a new book by Cande de Leon entitled The Heart of the Mission. I cannot recommend this book enough to parishes, pastors, ministry teams, and anyone really. Cande breaks down the HOW of Evangelization in a way that makes sense for all believers.
Today’s post flows from yesterday’s research on trusted, belonging relationships. It’s not just for the young people in our life. With the media being so volatile, it’s important we have someone we trust to talk to about matters of faith. How are we living the truth of evangelization. I’ve said before that the first step is relationship. I’m reinforcing that here today.
It’s common knowledge (or used to be) that we don’t discuss politics and religion with strangers, family members, first dates, or anyone really. I don’t think that actually helps us though. We need to figure out how to have healthy conversations around these topics because they are important. Conversations that have both sides leaving with their dignity in place!
