Last Words Radio takes on my “14 Reasons” tonight!

May 30, 2009

Last Words Radio Last Words Radio has a weekly show on the topic of evangelism. Tonight, they will be discussing 14 Reasons to Stop Evangelizing Your Friends by yours truly!

It looks like we have pretty different perspectives. Their website has an invitation to join them on the streets of Burbank, California: “We pass out Bible tracts, open-air preach, and engage people in one-on-one conversations.” Been there, done that (well, not in Burbank). I shared this over breakfast this morning:

Me: “Handing out tracts! Tracts are pamphlets, little booklets,” I explained to the children. “But why do they call them tracts? Who else uses that word these days?”
Kay: “It shows they’re stuck in the past.”
Me: “And open-air preaching? I don’t think it makes sense in the U.S. But, you know, maybe it does somewhere else. Like India.”
Kay: “No, not even India.”
Me: “You’re right, that’s not why the church is growing there.”

But I admire their passion, and welcome their critique. The show is 9:00 – 10:00 p.m. PST. If you’re in Southern California, you can tune in to 99.5 KKLA. Otherwise, you can listen online at or watch the live video stream.

Update: The podcast of the show is now available.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
