mid-week apologetics booster (12-31-2015)

Hi All,

As we are on the cusp of the new year, I would encourage you to make a commitment to both learning how to better defend your faith and also putting yourself in situations where you can interact with those who may not share your convictions.  As the apostle Paul writes, “Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” (Colossians 4:5-6)

Here are some links that may help you in those goals:
