Evangelism through Networking

groupwhite_flowers

July 1992 by Tim Keller

Philosophy of Networking

"Networking" was originally a modern marketplace-jargon word, which refers to deliberate relationship building to meet business goals. I use it to mean a whole philosophy of ministry based on friendship evangelism.

For years, Christians... have talked about "friendship evangelism" as opposed to methods such as "cold contact" evangelism (street evangelism, tract distribution, cold calling), "mass evangelism" (crusades, radio/TV broadcasts), "visitation evangelism" (Evangelism Explosion).

The Practice of the Presence of God

The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence.

http://www.ccel.org/ccel/lawrence/practice.titlepage.html

From the Christian Classics website:

Brother Lawrence is one of the most admired and imitated sons of the Catholic church. He worked for a time as a soldier before entering the Discalced Carmelite Prior in Paris. Lawrence was uneducated, and so had to enter the monastery as a layman. He worked in the kitchens and as a cobbler there for the remainder of his life. Lawrence is known for his devotion and ability to bring God into every aspect of his life. His classic Christian work, Practice of the Presence of God, details how to gain that constant and comforting connection to God.

Readers have treasured this short and easy book for centuries because of Lawrence's honest advice and his obvious passion for spiritual matters. He rejoiced in everyday tasks, prayed constantly, and was known around the monastery for his kindness and willingness to help others.

Practice of the Presence of God is a creative Christian work that is required reading according to many believers. Readers will come away with great peace and joy, and a better understanding of what it means to constantly be in God's presence.
