Evangelism for those who are Lost for Words

Our Lent Course for 2014 started last night when 40 people gathered in the Barnabas Centre. The particular course we used, called “Lost for Words” was laid on in response to people’s request for something that would help them, practically, to share their faith.

The explosive growth of the new Testament Church came from the early disciples following St Peter’s words: “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” (1 Peter 3:15)

In this first session, we explored what reaction the word “evangelism” gave to those present. We looked at the positive as well as the negative aspects of sharing our faith with friends, colleagues and family.

We look forward to learning more in subsequent weeks. If you would like help in sharing your faith, do join us on Tuesdays at 7.30 p.m. in the Barnabas centre.
