The topic of evangelism must (or should) be an important one for all Orthodox Christians (Matthew 28:16-20).

I propose to the moderators of OC Net that they start a new forum for Missions and Evangelism.

Now I'm not sure if "Technical Help" was the right place to raise this topic, so the mods can move this topic if they want - that's fine by me. But we should have a forum devoted solely to missions and evangelism. Not just for missions abroad but here in the US as well.

Having been involved in a small mission once, I am aware that they face unique problems and it would be great if there were a forum where people could talk about starting up new missions.

I always wondered why Orthodoxy is called Americas best kept secret?

I just hope that the Orthodox wont be annoying like the Mormons, Jehova's Witness, and Evangelical groups when it comes to evangelizing (i.e. door-to-door religion salespeople)

"The Orthodox" are never annoying. Wink

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
