Thank you so much to all who took part in our book giveaway. Our winner is Eva! Congratulations!!!
Many thanks to Karen Edmisten for inaugurating our new website feature “Guest Essays” with her essay on “Being There”:
Is there someone in your life who doesn’t know God? What’s the best way to evangelize that friend, acquaintance, or spouse? We’re called to share the Good News, but it’s hard to know where to start. If finding God is a process (and it often is), how can we be there for those who are working their way through a process that sometimes feels like a minefield?
As a former atheist who was blessed with loving Christian friends who never gave up on me (even when I seemed to be a lost cause), I know there’s no simple answer to that question, and one size certainly does not fit all. But we don’t have to overcomplicate the answer either.
Karen is a dear friend and a kindred spirit and has just published a wonderful book on sharing the faith with others (which is very complementary to the aims of this website!) and so we are very pleased to be able to offer a copy of this book, You Can Share the Faith: Reaching Out One Person at a Time in a giveaway. If you would like to be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment on this post.
*OPTIONAL*: We would love it if you would include in your comment something simple about how someone has “been there” for you in your own faith journey, even if you don’t have a dramatic story of conversion.
A winner will be chosen randomly on Friday, February 19th.
Note: For cost reasons, we are only able to ship the book to a U.S. address.
