I got interrupted in a conversation today just as I heard someone say ‘but all my friends are Christian’.
Clearly I have been getting this business of outreach all wrong. We need to go right back to basics. If all your friends are Christians, it’s time to find new friends. Adopt a pagan. Befriend an atheist. Spend time with someone who radically disagrees with you.
You have about 92% of the population to choose from, after all. (OK– that’s based on actual church attendance, but even the most generous estimates of Christian allegiance in Britain leave you will a full 24% of the population from which to find new friends.)
