Category Archives: Unlike Jesus: Let’s Stop Unfriending the World

Please Consider an “Unlike Jesus” Seminar – Part 5

Friends: As you know, my most recent book is Unlike Jesus! Let’s Stop Unfriending the World.  I’m convinced many of us believers meet only with other Christians, watch only Christian movies, and eat only Christian casseroles. We make lousy friends because we’re not sure we’re supposed to be a friend of sinners!

In the next few posts, I’m going to hammer pretty hard on this idea of being a friend of sinners — like Jesus was! I have one goal in mind — to get you (and me) much more serious about the unbelievers we know and to challenge us to develop deep, committed friendships with them.

Just so you know, I’ve developed three videos which cover the basics of my book and can be used in a Zoom kind of church study. I would gladly lead the discussion (live) after your church group watches each video. All we have to do is schedule the meetings.

We’ve looked at the first two videos and a couple of short pitches for the book. Let’s look at a third pitch about . . . listening!

We’ve looked at that first video. My publisher suggested I produce an “elevator pitch” — what I would say to someone about my book if I had 3 minutes in an elevator. So I did. And I took less than a minute! Enjoy!

Invite Me to Your Church to Do an “UNLIKE JESUS” Seminar!

Friends:

I’m convinced that there is a major element missing in many Christian’s lives. That missing element is that we are often not friends of sinners as Jesus was. We spend our time watching Christian movies, listening only to Christian music, and eating only Christian casseroles! We have to develop meaningful relationships with those who are still outside of Christ!

That’s why I wrote Unlike Jesus: Let’s Stop Unfriending the World. HE was a friend of sinners (Matthew 11) and we should be as well.

I am passionate about this subject and have a half-day seminar ready to present to your church!  Just invite me!

If you are a leader in your church and wish to consider my offer, I will gladly send you a complimentary copy of my book Unlike Jesus for you to read and present to your church’s leadership team.  There is no huge fee to have me come.  Just cover my expenses in travel!

A half-day Saturday seminar — on friendship evangelism! What could be better than that! (And I’d be pleased to speak at your Sunday service if you wish).

My contact information is on the right of the page.  Let’s make 2020 different this year by becoming friends of sinners!
