Sharing our faith

September 29, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Some links to ideas about sharing our faith.

Read The God Debate–an interview with Rick Warren and Sam Harris (well-known athiest) at the newsweek website.

La Shawn  Barber talks about sharing her faith with a stranger

In her post, La Shawn points you to an interesting website called The Way of the Master which has a variety of tools that help us to share our faith.  One they suggest “Einstein + Sex = God” as a tool to share our faith.

Another tool that I discovered when we were in Singapore–an article about using four circles rather than the four laws as a tool to share our faith.

Finally, a book I picked up this weekend at a friend’s house, called Un Christian: What a new generation really thinks about Christianity . . . and why it matters. David Kinnaman says Christians are viewed by many people today as 1. Hypocritical 2. Too focused on getting converts 3. Anti-homosexual 4. Sheltered 5. Too political 6. Judgmental   He is suggesting that we must understand how we are perceived before we can work to change these perceptions.  A book worth examining!

Lord, let me be fully present in my world today, with eyes open to the opportunities you bring.

    So hey,

    That book by Kinnaman, how far along have you gotten in it?

    The Barna Group does EXCELLENT EXCELLENT work.

    They ARE our Messiah’s focus group leaders!

    (And I’m not saying that because I’ve done work for them either) 🙂 🙂

    As I said, just dipped into it while babysitting for a friend last weekend. Read the first two chapters–so enough to get the basic thrust of the book. Hoping to make more posts about the alternatives that he proposes Christians should present to the world! Too many on my list right now is the problem

    I read the article in Newsweek between Rick Warren and Sam Harris. It was interesting and I enjoyed reading Rick’s responses to this man. But to tell you the truth, it left me very sad. Sad that Mr. Harris is so determined not to believe – more determined than we Believers are TO believe. Rick’s last comment was so logical I don’t see how Mr. Harris could ignore it!

    I love you by the way…Sis
