Share Yourself (week 1), Know the Kerygma (week 2), Everything Leads to the Liturgy (week 17), and Catechesis is a Means of Evangelization (week 21). Next week, we'll finish out the fab five encounters with Service. This week, my goal is to see them in context. I've created a chart to show these unique meetings with Christ in the context of personal conversion, as well as to highlight the importance of their role as catalyst in our Christian experience of "being sent."
Witness - Proclamation - Liturgy - Catechesis - Service
And it's to our overwhelming advantage , both personally and apostolically, when all five means of evangelization are incorporated organically into our own daily walks of faith. As we learn to encounter Christ in all things and to share him with others, our own hearts come to experience a personal "fire" for the awe-inspiring goodness of God. It's then that we become contagious with his Spirit, making our efforts to introduce others to Jesus far more fruitful. Through the worship, teachings, and saints of his Church, as well as through our own personal experiences of faith and active service, the Lord has equipped us to find him in any situation. Wherever someone might be on their journey, we can ensure Christ's presence in our work, and we can do so with purpose and confidence.
