EvangeLetters Seal of Dove Holding Letter Flying Under Episcopal Shield

What is EvangeLetters?

The Episcopal Church in East Tennessee’s Evangelism Task Force is excited to announce a new offering in practicing evangelism: EvangeLetters. EvangeLetters will be a practice in the art of sharing portions of your own personal story of faith with the goal of being an evangelist.  Sharing your story is what evangelism is at its heart: sharing how Jesus has been present in or changed your life, and why you continue to follow Him. 

EvangeLetters will consist of a series of four prompted letters sent between two randomly paired individuals from across the diocese to practice in sharing your story. Participants will then be encouraged to write a fifth letter to someone in their own life and share with them the Good News as the writer has experienced it.

As baptized Christians, we are all already evangelists. The Evangelism Task Force hopes that EvangeLetters will allow individual Episcopalians in East Tennessee to claim their baptismal vocation as evangelists and join together to practice sharing the Good News to a world that needs Good News so very badly.

Collect for Evangelism

Lord Jesus Christ, you proclaimed by word and example the loving, liberating, and life-giving good news of God, that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, following you in that way of evangelism, may be transformed as we seek, name, and celebrate your loving presence in the stories of all people, and strive for more of you and your kingdom; and all for your love’s sake. Amen.
