If you had 5 minutes to answer the question “Why should I be Catholic?” what would you say? In this [workshop/talk] we will unpack the Gospel message, the central message of Christianity. We’ll talk about the importance of the gospel in evangelization, outline a simple framework for memorizing the basic gospel message, and address the four misconceptions about God that are a barrier to the gospel message. We’ll end with some practical tips for sharing the gospel with others and inviting others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
