What’s Next??

For Methodists in Lancashire, 2013 is our district ‘Year of Evangelism.’  Now if prayer is a scary word, I think most of us would secretly confess that evangelism is even scarier!

But if you really think about it, evangelism starts with the simple act of sharing.  We cannot effectively share God’s message in words if we’re not first sharing it in love.  What could you share with someone in your life or your community- a cup of tea and a word of encouragement?  How about a home-cooked meal?  Could you babysit for a struggling parent?  Help out a new neighbour to welcome them to the neighbourhood?  Or give some time to someone who needs it?

Through the year we’ll be exploring how we can embrace evangelism in our church, in our homes and in our church family.  So as we begin this new year, I encourage each of us to give some thought to a simple question- ‘What can I share?’  And let’s keep one another in prayer as we journey together in the coming year.
