Life together with the Risen Lord is possible in the public square. We see in the book of Acts that St. Paul brings the gospel to Athens. He sees all their desire for answers and he does not hide from sharing the promise of Jesus.
How do we today go forward into the public square with the promise of the gospel?
Do we go forward afraid of the power? No, we don’t need to be afraid because Jesus goes with us and he is victorious.
Do we go forward expecting everyone to become our ally once they hear our message? No, we know the truth that seed that is planted is not always going to grow.
What do we expect? We expect Jesus to be the risen Lord that is the power of God to work salvation.
