Stranger to friend
Science is clear in that the quickest most efficient way to bond with a group of stranger is to go through a shared painful and difficult experience together or sharing difficulties in our lives rather than sharing triumphs and successes. The bible tells stories of struggle, where we find the heroes of our faith. So as we attempt to make friends for Christ, it is important to not only tell the way Christ has transformed our lives but also to talk about our difficulties and struggles. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
