On the Christian Calendar, Easter is rapidly approaching.
More has been written about easter, and the cultural connection with bunnies and chocolate that I can to link here.
However, Easter can also be a conversational occasion with people.
Easter provides for natural conversational opportunities
Yesterday, a co-worker was asked to do a significant project update on Easter Sunday.
He politely said, “It’s Easter, no.”
His co-worker cheerfully states “I’m so irreligious that I didn’t even know Easter was coming.”
A light hearted conversation followed about Easter.
Consider having conversations with people when the opportunity presents itself.
Questions for Easter Conversations
Here are some questions you might use:
- What does your family do on Easter Sunday?
- Why does your family do whatever it is they do on Easter?
- Do you ever go to church on Easter? Why or why not?
- Would you like to join me this Sunday at church?
- Do you believe in God? What do you think He’s like?
- Are your beliefs about God the same as your parents’ beliefs?
- Do you think Jesus rose from the dead like the Bible says?
Our conversations with people should be natural ebb and flow of a conversation. I offer these questions simply to help your conversations along.
Let me ask you this?
What other questions have you found helpful for a friendly conversation?
My own Personal Evangelism Teaching on DVD
I have a DVD (or digital download) set that focuses on a conversational style evangelism that would be effective in:
- casual conversation between friends
- causal conversation between strangers
