How-to evangelization workshop planned ‘for saints, sinners and scaredy cats’

LINCOLN (SNR) — All are invited to learn the principles and practicals of everyday evangelization while networking with other missionary disciples in the area through a series of talks, “Everyday Evangelization.”

The series, which begins July 6, is “a how-to workshop for saints, sinners and scaredy cats.” It is sponsored by the Diocese of Lincoln Office of Evangelization.

The presentations will be done in a workshop format, covering topics on when, how, and what to share when one shares their faith. Participants will learn the skills, attitudes and habits essential for ordinary Catholics living ordinary lives who bear fruit in the lives of their co-workers, friends, family and fellow-parishioners.

Presenter Jim Jansen has worked on the front lines of the New Evangelization for more than 15 years. His work with The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) has given him experience training missionaries and other lay leaders to share their faith in the context of their everyday lives.

Jansen will share FOCUS’s “secret recipe” for raising up leaders in the New Evangelization.

“This series is for anyone who really desires to begin to share their faith,” he said, “regardless of their vocation or state in life.”

The talks will be held on three Wednesdays, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the John XXIII Diocesan Center. The first talk, “The Call,” will be held July 6. “The Message” will follow July 27 and the series concludes with “The Method” Aug. 17. Registration is not required, and there is no cost to attend.
