This last Friday we had an outreach event for our community. It was NOT one of those come to our church events; it WAS one of those come to Jesus events. Now I have just finished reading The Present Future for the second time so I was keenly aware that what most churches call outreach events are really just events for themselves. But I think we provided an event that our commuity enjoyed.
We invited Christian Illusionist Jared Hall to perform at our community theatre building NOT at our church. Jared uses illusions and comedy for a purpose. He used a great illusion to introduce the gospel seemlessly. At the end of the night I was proud to be part of this opportunity. I was also proud to be part of a church that was willing to pay the cost so that we could provide this free of charge to our community.
I hope we can continue to reach people with the gospel.
