The Joy of the Gospel – 19th Annual Tinsley Lecture
From a Theology of the Balcony to a Theology of the Road with Dr Cathy Ross
24th May, 8.00pm
Whatever happened to evangelism?
Does anyone share their faith with others anymore?
If we take an honest look at the fruit of many churches we might conclude that evangelism is a low priority for many Christians.
Has the more recent social justice emphasis taken priority?
Do we need more or better training?
Are we overcome by fear?
Regardless of the reason, we must admit that the Australian church is at a critical crossroads of witness.
How can we recover what it means to be a people who can share the gospel with bold humility and a proper confidence in our context?
How can we get involved in people’s daily lives, by word and deed?
How do we reclaim the basic Christian truth that God became human to bring good news to the poor, new light to the blind, and liberty to the captive? Using this striking metaphor, we will consider what it means to evangelise joyfully in our place and space.
