The men of Hope Chapel attended a retreat this weekend, the topic being “Spiritual Warfare.” After lunch, eight of us hunkered down to do a two hour Bible study on the subject. When finished, everyone noticed that a bunch of guys were whooping it up on the soccer field.
Others were shooting hoops, playing Ping-Pong, tossing Horse Shoes, or just hanging out and relaxing—all perfectly normal activities that men engage in at retreats.
I asked our study group a simple question: “What would you guys like to do now, play soccer or go out and evangelize?”
To my great shock and amazement they all answered enthusiastically, “EVANGELIZE!!!”
Oh me of little faith!
Pass the mustard seed, please…
