Public Faith: Learning to Think Critically, Engage Winsomely, and Share the Love of Jesus in a Pluralistic Society
Do you have a desire for those around you to know Jesus, yet you wrestle with how to communicate the Gospel in the midst of a culture that often makes fun of those who are religious?
Come join us (and bring a friend) at the Portico Church Office (3240 Wilson Blvd. Suite 200 Arlington, 22201) on Friday, August 18, where Pastor of Urban Outreach Steve Reed will walk you through the following:
- How to initiate the conversation in a disarming manner
- How to overcome fears of sharing your faith
- How to answer tough questions such as: You may live by faith, but I base my positions on evidence—why should I believe if you can’t prove God to me? How can you say that good people are lost just because they don’t believe in Jesus? I can’t believe in a God who allows so much suffering in the world. The Bible is historically unreliable and regressive, how can you seriously follow what it says in there?
- How to apply the gospel to controversial topics of the day (ex. sex and gender issues)
There will be a teaching section, a Q & A, and a time to pray by name for those in your life who don’t know Jesus.
There will also be a casual hangout at a local spot afterward, for those who want to join.
The event will begin at 7:00 pm sharp, in order respect everyone's time. Please email Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend but need to be late.
The Public Faith Group will meet once a month, covering a different topic each time.
