The Preacher's Wife & The Newspaper - Virtual Luncheon - Part 4
"Most of the people who read my column are already believers. I still keep in mind a small part of my audience may not know Jesus, but enjoy humorous stories.
"One friend, who is not a Christian, reads my column on a regular basis because she likes the way I write. Now, that's a high compliment! I hope and pray I am planting seeds in her life. I copy my columns and mail them to friends and relatives, some of whom aren't Christians, so I'm also getting the message out that way.
"Are you ordering dessert? Let's get something and share it, okay? Better yet, let's order three desserts and each of us share with the other two!"
I hold up both hands, "I surrender. You guys are wrecking my diet today. I'll have to spend the entire week at the gym.
"Rhonda, don't think I forgot about you. I want to know if your newspaper permits you to speak freely about your faith."
...to be continued.
Questions for the Reader: How can we share our faith in a general market setting? Have you had any success in this area?
