Growing anyway

For those of us who have struggled with being "evangelistic," it's encouraging to know that the early church grew not because they were distributing gospel tracts but because they were practicing hospitality, neighborliness and social concern for the poor and marginalized.

Yep, and it's taken me 30 years of discipleship to realize this.

You're quite welcome, Bethany. Glad you found it refreshing.

Might I also strongly recommend that if Hope's party is over, it's a good idea to remove some of your personal information from the H'sBP blog. Not everyone reading our blogs is doing so for spiritual enlightenment.
