As Christians, we have wonderful opportunities to talk to people about the reason for the hope that we have - Jesus Christ.
But often we miss these opportunities. Sometimes, we're too ashamed of our own conduct to share our reasons for trusting Jesus. Sometimes, we're just unprepared. Sometimes, we're too afraid. Sometimes, we're just uncompassionate. Sometimes, we're too busy. Sometime, we're just unaware.
I'd love for us to be able to communicate our faith to our friends in a way that's honoring to God and helpful to them. To help us do this, we're going to be touching on Conversational Apologetics tonight at Large Group.
I hope tonight is helpful, but I think we may be "eating the elephant this week." Do you know that expression? There's way too much material for us to cover in one sitting, so lets take lots of small bites. By the end of the week, it's my hope that you'd be better able to give the reason for the hope that you have to anyone who asks you. :)
If you surf on over tonight, can I recommed an audio resource for you? Check out Michael Ramsden's talk on Conversational Apologetics at: http://www.bethinking.org/resource.php?ID=114&TopicID=12&CategoryID=13.
