  15. 15. DOs DONTs Be yourself Be a poser Speak the truth about their actions Be judgmental of people Preach the gospel always Use words...except when necessary Engage with people to win hearts for Christ Argue just to win arguments Start with the relationships already in your life Forget that effective evangelization starts with relationship Affirmatively share what you've found to be right Focus on how everyone else is wrong Admit when you're wrong Pretend you're always right Self-edit and remember who's "in the room.” Just say whatever you feel whenever you feel like saying it Spend more time learning your faith than preaching about it Talk more than you listen Let a joyful smile shine through your online presence Forget that your joy is one of the most powerful tools you have Matthew Warner, Founder Flocknote
  16. 16. victorvalenzuela.net @1victorv The Prayer of the Woman at the Well Lord of living water, pour your mercy on us. Wash us clean and make us true disciples. Help us move from the paths of selfishness and stubbornness,to the channels of hope and peace. Enable us to place our whole trust in your love. Help me to understand the hunger and thirst we have Open our hearts to receive the waters of life Fill our empty vessels with your wisdom, O God, that I may learn how to truly live again. Amen.
