I was in the lunch room there was a teacher discussing not being comfortable with the church that she attends and that she was looking for a place that she would feel comfortable in. I listened in for awhile (That's about all a guy can do in a teacher's lounge where there are usually over ten women and normally only one guy) and found that what she was interested in resembled the atmosphere of our church. I decided to end my silence and mentioned that our church might be the type of place that she would fit the needs that she was looking for. I described the atmosphere and did my best to let her know that she would be welcomed at our church. It was nothing earth shattering, just an invite.
I have no idea if my invite will be used. I do know that it took me a few minutes to get up the nerve to even bring up the invitation. What is wrong with me? The Great Commision tells Christians to go out and spread the word. I struggle even bringing up attending a church, to someone who is looking for a church!
I believe I have satisfied the requirements for this goal to be done, but I am more happy that I have had the experience and this post to help internalize my issues with sharing my faith. Songs like "Not Ashamed" should feel more like a way to live than just sounding like a cool popular song.
