A person must have an encounter with Jesus before he or she is going to be open to catechesis, i.e. the teachings, the practices, the beliefs of the Church. There are many times when we try it the other way around, and it never really takes root in the lives of those we’re trying to bring to faith. We are asking the question, which should come first, evangelization or catechesis? Keep in mind, that an encounter with Jesus simply can be the first time a person meets a Christian. We are all called to be Christ in this world. Here is another question to ponder, is there too much instruction and not enough action when it comes to Christianity? Lots to unpack on this Easter Monday and with your help this will be a fruitful discussion. Call in to 1-800-585-9396 and help guide the show with your wisdom.
