Speaking of Faith

Speaking of Faith is a 7-week small group program which focuses on the conversational aspects of evangelism:  asking good questions and telling good stories.  Few Episcopalians are experienced in evangelism because it is neither commonly understood nor well-practiced in our denomination.  Talking about God in our everyday lives is not the norm, but is it what we are called to do – both through Christ’s Great Commission and also through St. Paul’s own mission of seeking, serving, and celebrating God.

The resources utilized in this program include the books Holy Conversation and ReImagining Evangelism (would recommend linking titles to external sites) and seek first to help group members tell stories of their own experiences of God in a casual, fellowship environment.  A mix of readings, DVD material, flip chart notes, and open conversation draw groups closer together and demystify the previously misunderstood practice of evangelism.
