Evangelism in the Suburbs

Greetings, once again. I want to change the direction of my blog a slight bit. What has been on my mind most recently has been, for lack of a better word, evangelism. As Lutherans, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is of utmost importance to us. We believe that Jesus Christ offered himself on the cross for our sins. We, also believe that three days later, He rose from the dead. His blessed death and resurrection is the bedrock of our faith. As Lutherans, we also believe in the importance of a solid confession of our faith, contained in the Book of Concord. Sadly, very few people understand who the Lutherans are and therefore have a weak understanding of the Gospel at best. Strongsville is also a community in which it is challenging to get the word out about who the Lutherans are. It is my goal that this blog becomes a way that we can get the Word out about Jesus: who He is and what He has done for us. I appreciate any input on how the Gospel message can be proclaimed to the people in the surrounding areas. Soli Deo Gloria!
