Evangelism Focus 11/08/11

The above picture probably has little-to-no significance to you as was the same case for me until June of this year. In June, it was discovered I had an infection in one of my teeth that was draining into a pocket in the side of my gums. I was sent to a local endodontic office (thus the above picture), as the tooth was way in the back of my mouth and needed a specialist. This led to a root canal on one tooth, an attempted fix on a root canal on another tooth (everything that goes with a root canal procedure without the success at the end of the day), eventually surgery on that tooth, and many, many appointments to check the progress in between. As I entered this last appointment, I realized I was possibly missing an evangelistic opportunity that only came my way because of these tooth troubles. So, on my way to this last appointment, I stopped and purchased a couple gift cards to a local coffee shop (one for the doctor and one for the assistant), put them in a card with a gospel tract, and a note that went something like this:

Thank you so much for the kindness and care you've shown to me over the past few months. I wanted to take a moment to pass on a token of my gratitude and a booklet containing the most significant information I've ever heard.

There's not a lot of opportunity for conversation in dental appointments, so I handed the cards to the receptionist on my way out of the appointment.

God puts many opportunities in our path to share the gospel (some perhaps a little unconventional). If we keep our eyes open and employ a little creativity the opportunity is usually there (I say this from one chicken to another).
