In silence, ask God to open your heart and mind to new ideas and insights.
For many of us, “evangelism” is still a scary word. But in order for the Joyful Feast to grow, people need to hear about it. Even if we’re reluctant to try to convert people—and there is a good argument to be made that evangelism isn’t primarily about conversion—our goal for the Joyful Feast ought to be that it is meaningful enough in our lives and in our communities that we want to invite other people to be a part of it. We routinely tell people about things we are interested in and excited about. We invite people to participate in activities we enjoy. Why can’t the same be true for our spiritual community?
Ask God to help us be evangelists for the Joyful Feast and, ultimately, evangelists for the way of Jesus.
