at Roads From Emmaus, I'm reproducing it here:
What approach should we take to evangelizing our Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Catholic and Protestant neighbors? Most people would say they respect others' heritage and don't broach such topics, leaving it to the working of the Spirit and the individuals. Is this approach wrong?
What utility is there to evangelism in a country where Muslims come to be good Muslims?
Are any Orthodox hierarchs or clergy exhorting their flocks to have large families, and assuring them that if they do, the Church will be there for them? There seems to be a dearth of discussion on the Baptismal font as a source of new Christians. Has anybody analyzed critically whether we'd add more to the ranks of the faithful by providing social and material support to our young people to encourage them to marry and have children, rather than tripping over the Catholic and Protestant missions trying to find some purported un-evangelized Third World village?
