"Sheryl-Blessings to you. I'd just like to clarify sotimheng that I believe you are missing. The distinction that Shane Claiborne is trying to teach, is that witnessing cannot happen until we have developed a relationship to the person. This is sotimheng basic that any study in communication will also support. For example: if I were to encounter a total stranger on the street, and asked them to talk to me about their family (or any deeply personal issue), i would be met with resistance. If, however, I have shared experiences with this person beforehand, and their opinion of me was positive; I would receive little to absolutely no resistance what-so-ever. Shane is putting a total faith in the idea that by fleshing out the kind of life Jesus and His Disciples lived, people will be DRAWN to us and the message of the Gospel. This is in no way blasphemous, and is irrefutably the way in which the early Christians lived and understood the approach. I do not mean to offend, and if my words have come across as hostile I sincerely apologize."
