Many people feel fearful about sharing their faith, but that is exactly what we are called to do.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19
If people aren’t ready to share their faith stories after Mass don’t be discouraged, that way of sharing isn’t for everybody and it does take time for people to get used to the idea of sharing their faith publicly. Let’s be honest, it’s not how we have practiced our faith in the past.
You can encourage people to open up and share a little about their faith by asking questions on Facebook. Here are some examples of questions you can ask:
What is your favourite saint?
How can we pray for you?
What is your favourite book?
What are you thankful Christ has done in your life?
What’s your favourite podcast?
What spoke to you from the homily on Sunday?
What is your favourite book of the Bible and why?
What is your favourite Pope quote?
What’s a good caption for this photo?
What is your favourite worship song?
What is one nice thing you could do for somebody in your life today?
