Thanks for this, so very touching to me because your point about “meeting people where they are” nails the desire to connect and share with others, not lecture them. For me, that says “sharing what is meaningful to me in the hope that it is meaningful to you.” I cant do that unless I have some deep relationship behind those words…what does God mean to me? What does Jesus mean to me? How has the meaning (not the word) impacted my life in tangible ways? So, when I share even the words that depth of meaning is behind/supporting/illuminating to others (I hope!).
