How Do I Reach Out to Neighbors Whose Lifestyle I Disagree with–and other Questions About Biblical Hospitality

Hanging on the wall in front of my writing desk is a picture of our house in 1940. I (Lance) look at that picture and think, Seventy-five years ago the Lord was in this neighborhood.

It is no different in your neighborhood. The Lord got… … Continue reading

This Boat Adventure Story Will Help You Share Your Faith

It was getting close to spring during my junior year of college. A few buddies and I decided to plan an epic spring break adventure. To qualify as “epic” it needed to involve a challenge that we weren’t sure we could actually pull off—a challenge that would blur the line between risky and just plain stupid.

E-MESS: What is the point of telling people about Jesus?

Wally, I’ve realized you can’t change people’s minds. There is no convincing people. I’ve tried witnessing to a friend to no effect. I’ve tried being a good Christian example to no effect. I’ve studied hard to make sure my beliefs line up with the Bible so I can talk to other Christians who might have the wrong ideas about the Bible or the wrong opinion about God… and all that still to no effect. We’re… … Continue reading
