In the community in which our church is situated, we are trying this programme this year. Almost all of the churches (most were very interested, Protestant AND Catholic, only a few declined to participate) have asked their members and adherents to take a lawn sign and on December 12th at 6 p.m., we are all going to put our signs on our lawns and leave them out until after Christmas. The signs serve two purposes - to show the presence of Christians in our community and to give our neighbours the chance to ask about our faith if they so desire it. We aren't alienating people by pushing our faith on them but we aren't hiding in the shadows so that someone who might be interested won't know to ask and come along one day.
I hope we do get asked and I look forward to taking a drive around to see where the signs turn up. For more information, click on this link.
