Evangelism? People younger than 40?

Episcopal Cafe has posted this article from the Alban Institute here

I commend it to you as well as the first comment on the article. I invite your discussion and look forward to hearing from you. For instance, if our website offered you your own blog, would you use it? What do you think about Tom Brackett's comment that most evangelism efforts are self-serving, aimed at the survival of a parish institution? How and what would we do differently, in order to focus ourselves outside of ourselves and instead on speaking the good news of God in Christ?

I also take this opportunity, regarding the suggestion we cease using the word "evangelism" and use faith-listening/faith-sharing instead, to tell you we will begin learning together how to do that at Grace Episcopal Church starting in the fall. Watch this space!
