Effective Evangelism

A New York Times article about Rev. C. John McCloskey III: An Opus Dei Priest with a Magnetic Touch, who “makes converts of the rich and Republican.” I hope he has a counterpart who’s making converts among Democrats:

He is a devout free-marketeer, a priest who defends the compatibility of pro-business policies and Catholic theology. But more than anything, when I asked what made Father McCloskey so successful at persuading people to join the church, I heard the answer, counterintuitive in its simplicity, that he befriends people, whether they ask for it or not.

We can’t all be Billy Graham, but everybody can do that kind of evangelism.
