Miscommunication is nothing new. From the dawn of history, people have always struggled to understand exactly what the other person was saying to them. That’s because we all have our own “accents”—our own way of getting our message across.
This is hard enough when trying to discuss something like politics, relationship likes/dislikes, or even movie preferences. But what about when you’re trying to communicate something intangible? Like your personal faith.
Most Christ-followers communicate their faith with the same “style” that they communicate their menu preferences, political persuasions, or music choices. But there is an added element of misunderstanding built in to the spiritual dimension. Even Jesus’ own disciples said “Huh?” many times to Him.
This Sunday, we begin a brand new series in our 6:00 PM service simply entitled Huh? We will be learning some very practical ways to communicate our faith to others by learning their unique communication style. If you have ever felt that you’re just not getting through, feel free to join us.

Hum? Learning how to better evangelize our sphere of influence? Friends at Bethel A/G… you are blessed! I’ll look forward to hearing about it! My church has a Sunday School class toward this end but I’m not in that one yet.
Understandably, energies and prayer focus could be on the temperals, as the world is economically, ecologically [debated] and amorally imploding on itself. But all the more reason for harvest minded teaching! My spiritual mom reminded me tonight that she prays each morning for God to put someone in her path that day to minister to. I desire for it to be commonplace for me to lead people to Christ. We have assurance that Light is hitting and Salt is permeating. Still, I want more boldness that will come through training and practice.
