I’m flicking through a great little book by Bill Hybels entitled ‘Just Walk across the Room’.  It is yet another ‘How to’ book on evangelism. I like the section called ‘Living in 3D’ which points us to the direction and pace that evangelism should take. 

First, develop friendships. 

Next, discover stories.

Finally, discern steps. 

I like.  Seems like we are so ready to take someone through some steps in their faith without cultivating a genuine friendship or listening to their story. Let’s kill off the arrogance of the evangelical bully and, instead, become champions of love. Now there’s a Christmas thought.
