Introduction to Catechistic Evangelism
Gospel of Mark
Sharing the Gospel can be challenging, but Christ called us to do this work Mk 16:15. It can be challenging to decide what to include and what to leave out of your presentation of the Gospel to a friend, a loved one, or a perfect stranger. A Catechism is a question and answer dialogue, much like the kind of rhetoric that Paul uses in his letters Rom 6:15. If you'd like to improve your evangelism, consider memorizing the brief Catechism above from the Gospel of Mark. To help in this process, make a brief video of yourself rehearsing the Catechism. You can share this video on social media, and it will be your first big step to reaching all those Christ intended for your to touch with the Gospel. May the Lord go ahead of you to make your way straight.
