Do you desire to have some focused Christ-centered conversation during your Christmas festivities this year? As our family looks to include our international students for the last time before they return home to Belgium, we are especially earnest to be able to share the hope of Jesus Christ with them. Here is a wonderful list of questions for any type of environment, from Christmas parties, to work gatherings, to gradually draw the conversations to a deeper level. You could use these around the Christmas table or in one-on-one dialogue, with friends and family, strangers, believers and unbelievers alike. I will even be using some of these at the ladies Christmas tea I am hosting this Saturday to reach out to our neighbors.
