The Huddle started this morning discussing the technique of â€œfriendship evangelism.â€Â Coach asked if Christians do it.Â â€œI donâ€™t think they do.â€ He said.Â â€œThey donâ€™t even bring people to church to have the pastor do it.â€
Coach told a story about a flaming lesbian nurse he met in the hospital yesterday.Â He confessed a feeling of guilt for not expressing compassion toward her.Â She made it obvious that she was both a lesbian and that Coachâ€™s reputation preceded him.Â While he felt compassion, he didnâ€™t express it.Â He now knows that he should have said something.
â€œDonâ€™t always lead with the gospel.â€ Said Coach.Â â€œLead with something else â€¦ like an expression of compassion.â€
A Huddler brought up the subject of intimacy.Â â€œThereâ€™s tremendous intimacy in a football teamâ€™s locker room.â€Â Coach observed.Â â€œBut thereâ€™s no intimacy in many of your families.â€
We think â€¦ wrongly â€¦ that evangelism is about getting someone to go to church with us.Â â€œWe have to learn how to live the gospel.â€ Said Coach.Â â€œWe need to have a â€˜go yeâ€™ mentality instead of a â€˜come yeâ€™ one.â€
George Soros gave seventy million dollars to abortion worldwide.Â â€œChristians give their money to churches.â€ Said Coach.Â â€œLeftists give their money to causes.â€Â Why canâ€™t we turn Christian dollars loose to end abortion?Â Itâ€™s all being consumed by smoke machines and pavement.
Robert Klous shared from the devotional he wrote, â€œFinders Keepers.â€
