The Sacrament of Evangelism

Description

Sacramentalists speak of God being present in the Sacraments to mediate grace to others. If this is so, then Evangelism is, at that level, a sacrament. We do not take Jesus to anybody. He is already present and mediating grace to all. We go to make explicit what He is already doing implicitly to woo others to Himself. God is already at work. We want to discover in what way He is working and partner with Him as He is loving others into His Kingdom. This talk looks at Evangelism as a work of God in which followers of Christ seek to participate.
