Evangelism with Integrity Workshop: The Reverend Whitney Rice will present the next in the series of Evangelism with Integrity workshops for lay and clergy teams on January 19th from 10 AM – 3 PM at Holy Family. “Evangelism often has negative connotations – it’s frequently associated with coercion, judgment, and fear tactics. And yet Jesus told us that evangelism is an important part of our calling. But what if evangelism was about reducing fear, not stoking it?” says Canon Brendan O’Sullivan-Hale, who is spearheading the diocesan-wide evangelism effort with Rice.
