 John 1:35-42  (NRSV)

“If you really want to understand why the church is declining in North America, you need to recognize how frightened most of our people are by the word ‘evangelism.’” David Lose, pastor of the Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis wrote that statement a number of years ago, and yet, I think there is truth to it, even today. For some, it comes from being on the receiving end of someone else’s evangelism. Whether asked “Have you accepted Jesus?” by a domineering brother-in-law or “Do you know where you’re going when you die?” by a well-meaning but intense co-worker, too many folks have experienced evangelism as coercive, even threatening.
