In a recent episode of Among Women, hostess Pat Gohn and her guest, Robyn Lee, were discussing the New Evangelization.
I was nodding along with the impassioned and lovely dialogue when Robyn said something that struck me: We’re all in this together.
It’s so easy to point at other people and think they are better-suited or more responsible for evangelizing than we are.
The fact is, though, that we are EACH called to evangelization through the witness of our lives. It starts with ME, in the safe, comfortable setting of my home and the people I come into contact with every single day.
My evangelization doesn’t have to reach “out there” to the world. In fact, the most important evangelization I do is to the people I live with and work with and talk to. I send more of a message with the way I live my life than I do with any of the words I use.
For a writer, those are rather disappointing insights.
For a Christian, though, they are beacons of hope and a call to action.
Let’s go! How will you evangelize today?
