Week 4: JP2 Evangelization

This week Courtney Brown from Ruah Woods discussed how one should evangelize considering other people as persons, and not as projects.  He discussed that it is often not worth discussing faith with those who want to mock and criticize, but that one should speak honestly to those with honest questions.
