... to Karin. In short, no, it wasn't that kind of sermon, although there was a part about the will of God in our lives, and that comes close. I don't remember much of the exact wording, which perhaps suggests I should take a notebook and pen into church, and resist it as merely a means to communicate with my neighbour without disturbing too many other people.
I'm not sure there really is a formula for evangelism, but I find that praying does help me find the right words, and I really should do it more often. Being more Christ-like again calls for more prayer and Bible study. I think the main point that was brought home to me yesterday is that we really don't know whether God exists or not, and we won't know until we get to heaven - or not. To live your live based on the assumption that He does exist and furthermore died for us - that's faith. Simple enough words, but so rarely heard from someone standing in front of a Sunday morning congregation.
Sorry, I know that probably doesn't answer the question, but I hope it helps in some way.
