Spirit Sunday

I really should take notes during Pastor Jeff's sermons.  Why don't I?  Because I am already overwhelmed by paperwork in this house, and I try not to bring any more in when I can help it.  But I always end up regretting not writing down certain things he says - I have a terrible memory.  Really terrible.  What was I talking about...

Pastor Jeff's sermon.  He is continuing his series on evangelizing, and he shared this clip.  PLEASE give it a chance - it's a bit lengthy ( a few minutes) and this man (a comedian I think - he looked familiar but I don't know him) tended to repeat himself a few times.  Although, actually, what he repeated I found pertinent to his story - it affected him so greatly, he kept saying it.

Anyway, I wanted to share this with you.  PLEASE give it a chance !

Interesting, right?  I want to make clear that this man is still an avid atheist, he has not converted to Christianity.  I checked out other self-made videos of his and these are his words, "My name is Penn Jillete and THERE IS NO GOD."

But how fascinating that this man, who so adamantly believes (for now, or perhaps for the rest of his life) in no God, also believes in evangelizing.  He called it proselytizing.  And it really struck me.  Yes, I do believe it is my duty as a Christian to share my faith, through as many avenues as possible.  I try to reflect my beliefs in my words and actions, within my family's behavior, through my role as MOPS coordinator, even on this blog and FB.  But do I approach strangers?  Never.  The closest I get is to say, "God bless" to someone.

Just really thinking about this.
