Ways to Evangelise Effectively

Don’t imagine you have a duty to share the gospel with everyone you meet you could quickly become someone to be avoided. No one is solely responsible for leading someone else to God. Be part of a team effort or a volunteer organisation made up of like-minded people. Be creative and unique. We are all different and we all have different skills, so  forget any specific methods you’ve been taught and use your own God given ideas. Some of us aren’t made to recruit; we’re made to respond. Be ready to share what you know when others ask or need your help. Avoid the kind of rhetoric that might put non-believers off! Be God’s shop window! In other words, be someone that other people aspire to emulate. Example is always the best way to evangelise.

Saint Thomas the Apostle  –  3rd July

‘Thomas shares the lot of Peter the impetuous, James and John, the “sons of thunder”. Philip and his foolish request to see the Father—indeed all the apostles in their weakness and lack of understanding. We must not exaggerate these facts, however, for Christ did not pick worthless men. But their human weakness again points up the fact that holiness is a gift of God, not a human creation; it is given to ordinary men and women with weaknesses; it is God who gradually transforms the weaknesses into the image of Christ, the courageous, trusting and loving one.’

Saints Peter and Paul   –  29th June

Peter and Paul represent two strikingly different approaches to discipleship. Peter had to learn slowly, make many mistakes along the way, but always experienced the compassionate forgiveness and encouragement of Jesus . Paul, on the other hand, came to the Faith immediately and never backed away from his zeal for Christ after that. We aim to imitate these two great apostles in our own lives. Like Peter, we know we are likely to fail and to get things wrong, yet like Peter we aim to persevere. Like Paul, we must always be on fire for the Lord, and proclaim Him to everyone and in every situation, no matter how difficult it can sometimes be to do so.
