The course has received an overwhelmingly positive response, so we've brought it back again! This evening at 7 p.m. (EDT), SPSE is inviting you to join us for a free one-hour webinar on "Calling For Prayers: How to Minister by Telephone." We'll provide you with the necessary training to equip your parish to offer phone ministry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll help guide you step-by-step through the process of how to console, pray with, and spiritually minister to souls over the phone. Reserve your spot today.

Also, make sure to catch our next webinar on Wed., May 13th, entitled: "Preparing for the Return: Parish Hospitality". We'll focus on what parishes or groups can do to welcome back parishioners from the long hiatus. People seek God in a time of crisis. Don't let your parish miss the boat by being unprepared! Our webinar will equip you and your parish to welcome seekers and integrate them into regular parish life. Dcn. Keith Strohm and Sheri Wohlfert will be our presenters.

For a limited time, our past webinars will be available for viewing, including “Faith and Social Distancing: How To Evangelize in a Pandemic”, “Healing in Evangelization”, and "One Good Reason" apologetics. To watch, simply click here.

Introducing Our Next Online Series: "One Good Reason"

Last year, our online School of Evangelization released the first course in its new BET video series. Introduction to Evangelization helps students get a grasp on the basics of doing the work of evangelization. Now we have a new course that we'll begin to release on Friday, May 15th entitled One Good Reason. While using the One Good Reason method to share the gospel isn't new (SPSE has been successfully using it for years), this is the first time we've offered an in-depth video course for this tried and true technique. 

If you're unfamiliar with One Good Reason, simply put, it's a  tool that helps the evangelist give concrete reasons for his beliefs. An evangelist, when using the four step model (Listen, Befriend, Proclaim, Invite), may experience challenges transitioning from befriending to proclaiming. The evangelist can then give One Good Reason why he believes in Jesus (or whatever the issue is). This combines providing compelling reasons for the faith with using one's own personal testimony. Next Friday, members of our online School of Evangelization will have access to the first two videos in the course (with corresponding written lessons.) The entire collection of videos for the first lesson will be released over the next five Fridays. We hope you find the videos helpful in your journey to become the evangelist that God made you to be!

Reactions to Jesus

Phoenix, AZ. Jesus told his disciples, "If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first." (John 15:18). He also warned of those who were lukewarm or indifferent: "So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot or cold, I will spit you out of my mouth." (Rev. 3:16) Finally, those who are disciples will "have love for one another." (John 13:35). Those are the three reactions that our evangelists experienced when sharing the love of Jesus on the streets today. Which should come as no surprise, since He told us these reactions to Him ahead of time in scripture. Whatever the reaction people might have, we must press on in sharing the truth with the world.
