“How do I share Christ with someone who is an agnostic?” a college student asked after a talk I gave last month at a church in Oklahoma. Then she added, “My boyfriend is agnostic, but I feel like God has called me into this relationship.” Uh-oh. It’s decision time.

Brett's monthly letter for February 2010 Dear Friend, Is anyone more committed to Christ than a missionary? They work tirelessly to get to the mission field. They spend years in formal education. They constantly pound the support-raising pavement. They pack up family, travel to a foreign land, and start a new life. And they don’t walk away from Christianity. Except when they do.
Dear Friend, Ideas have consequences. What we believe about God and the world is ultimately manifested in our day-to-day life. Yes, I’ve said this before but sometimes it’s difficult to make the connection. It isn’t always clear exactly how. Well, Brittni’s life makes it a bit clearer. And more powerful.
