“Preach the gospel, and if necessary use words.”
I’m sorry to break your bubble, but St. Francis of Assisi never said this. You can look it up and will probably find that the earliest instances of this circulating quote showed up in the 1980’s, many centuries after St. Francis’ death.
This past weekend, 7 of us went to Fells point at 10pm to share the gospel, to make God present in the lives of those around us. It is unconventional action on our part, fueled by our desire to obey a direct (not optional) command by Jesus, the one that is called the Great Commission.
