Just Show Up

"When Christians get to the point they read only Christian books, go only to Christian movies, hang out only with other Christians, eat only Christian cookies, and wear only Christian underwear, it's time for a reality check. That's sick, and it is a sickness unto death.
Once we are set free from the need to defend, protect, and hide, we have the freedom to show up in places where proper Christians don't go fro fear of getting dirty. And it is in our showing up that the authenticity of who we are becomes the 'flavor' that attracts others to the ice cream maker.
So, go do something that isn't religious. Just show up. It's called evangelism."
