A good friend of mine, Mark Randolph, was recently building a new relationship with some mormons in his community and just caring for them and loving on them the way Jesus would. He even invited them to a church block party, and they came. He said these words to them: “I appreciate the good work you guys do by going door to door through these years.” They replied, “Oh, door to door doesn’t work anymore; we have found that making friends and inviting them to church is what works.” No doubt, the way of Jesus always works: Befriend a person authentically, gain their trust, and later share your core. Further still, should they not accept your core or embrace your core, you are still their friend! How could we have gotten so far off track through the years?
