I’m writing this in an airplane over the Atlantic Ocean. I’m supposed to be witnessing to the person sitting beside me. Isn’t that the main venue for evangelism? Airplanes?
The problem with airplane evangelism is that it is sporadic. Most people never get on a fly. Airplane evangelism ignores regular evangelism back home. It is like short-term missions. People will evangelize in another country in a different culture… but they won’t do it at home. That is why I hesitate to tell stories about evangelism on airplanes. This is not the norm. Everyday evangelism should be the pattern.
By the way… the person sitting next to me doesn’t speak English. It is good that I wasn’t relying on this as my only evangelistic outlet.
