Our Discomfort With Evangelism

2 thoughts on “Our Discomfort With Evangelism”

  1. There is a wide range of reasons why Episcopalians are uncomfortable with evangelism, going all the way back to the beginning of our history in the US, when the Episcopal church rejected the emotionalism of the First Great Awakening. I have spent years exploring this question and many of my findings–as well as a proposal to use sacred conversations as a way to help us get more comfortable talking about faith–are included in my new book from Church Publishing, “Speaking our Faith: Helping the Next Generations to Tell the Old, Old Story.” I’d be happy to come to any parish in the diocese to talk about this. https://www.churchpublishing.org/speakingourfaith

  2. I think there is a difference in Evangelism and being Evangelical. As a Daughter of the King I am called to share the love of Jesus with everyone and that is Evangelism. Trying to convert others to my way of thinking is NOT. FHS.
