52 Ways To Share Your Faith- Week 10

Be the Best You Can Be at Work

How can you serve your colleagues this week? Do something that surprises them!

When I started my new job I soon discovered an office full of likeable people but lack of colleagueship. One woman who was most experienced always had more in her in-tray than everyone else. When I was trained up and getting more confident in the job I decided to break with the office tradition and help her out by offering to take some of her work. Soon others started to copy me and the office dynamic began to change. You might say it became more Christian. I don’t make a song and dance about being a Christian, my colleagues just know I am one. I hope doing something different and helpful might make them curious about Christianity one day.

Week 9 – 15

Sharing Good News During Worship

Over the next 2-3 weeks organise an opportunity within your acts of worship to allow people to share some good news (i.e. what has God done in my life over the last week). This is a great way to inspire one another and if done consecutively over a number of weeks encourages others to see what God is doing in their lives.

52 Ways To Share Your Faith- Week 8

Encourage Others in the Community

Do something encouraging or supportive for other people who serve the community – teachers, councillors, librarians, foster carers police, childminders and nursery nurses, care assistants, GPs, lollipop people, cleaners, bin & council operatives, those on customer services, traffic wardens(?). maybe just a card with an encouraging message might give those who work hard but feel unappreciated a powerful message that they are cared for.

Textify

Send an encouraging text to a friend or colleague. It’s a particularly good way to encourage Christian friends or to reach out to those who are not yet Christians in a low lever but effective way. Easy and non-intrusive to let someone know you are ‘lifting them up’ through a text.  They get the message and there’s no awkwardness or pressure to respond but the message gets through.
