I celebrate your generosity of spirit, Guest with Questions. Obviously I am of the same mind. Our pastor, as well, has vision for beyond our doors and meets people where they live.
I have managed to shock evangelists first of all that I married a Witness and second, that I will attend their services on occassion. One woman was convinced that she could be demon-possessed if she darkened their door. She had decided to witness directly at a Kingdom Hall one day, and couldn't get her car door open. She finally drove away, convinced that the Holy Spirit had saved her. I was of the private opinion that the Holy Spirit had saved that Kingdom Hall from some unwelcome attention.
This thread was a direct result of an insensitive evangelist (godrulz) who sees himself at the vanguard of a great army (or perhaps a small team here on JWN) to save the "lost". His crass approach brought to mind the prejudices that can keep people apart - away from true dialogue - because they cannot see their commonality. More foolish us.
