    David: this reminds me of ‘evangelism’ training within a Vineyard church I attended.

    The visionaries looked and saw ‘what was needed’, and declared a time for people to learn how to evangelize.

    It seemed that many congregants reluctantly jumped in to learn how to do outreach. After all, the leaders needed their support.

    I left the church about the time they drug their stone over to learn from a Christian guru on evangelizing… and then, as I heard through the rumor mill months later… they simply gave up.

    The stone they tried to drag was too heavy.

    Bonnie (my wife) and I simply continued to take food to the homeless in the woods, cooking in their camp grounds, and listening to them. Two other women continued with us; and two other men.

    The stone of sharing time, cooking, and listening within the homes of others … weighs very little.

    And requires no whip for ensuring attendance.
