Lent Day 11: CELT

Today, we're breaking away from our regular format because it's a fact- it's in honor of one of my favorite people ever...St. Patrick. Yeah, I gotta admit- he's one of my "faves". That said, I'm giving him a full day of "press" today.

A bit about the life of Maewynn Succit (St. Patrick): He utilized and perfected "relational evangelism" in which the seekers among the Celts (the indiginenous people of The Emerald Isle)were first invited to enter into community, and then they eventually converted; as opposed to "conversion evangelism" which requires a conversion experience prior to a person fully being accepted into the community.

Which is better, do you think? Patrick's way of Belong, then Believe or the standard way of evangelism that demands a person to Believe, before You Can Belong?

Which did Jesus use?
