I’ve gotten several readers asking my opinion on the “Free Gas” phenomenon where churches offer gas cards or supplement the cost of gas for a day as evangelism tactics. Two responses.
- YES, very interested in this gimmick, and I’ve got a lot to say about it.
- BUT I’m swamped at the moment with church stuff and thus it’s on the backburner.
I’ve been tinkering with a response piece to this since….well, the blogger date says 7/22, so maybe I should bust it out soon.
In the meantime, here’s some links to chew on. UMPortal beat me to the punch months ago, so read their article there
– It Keeps Getting Better
Also it’s now on CNN and on Reuters as churches try out this evangelism strategy. Feel free to read these links then respond.
– Bless You and Here’s some Gas
– Sex, blood, and gasoline
So check out those articles and consider this an open thread to discuss them.
- What are people’s responses to churches offering free gas or gas cards or even supplementing the gas prices for a few hours?
