Reason Rally Diaries
by Jonathan Shelton, University Junior at Lenoir Rhyne University and member of Ratio Christi, attended the recent atheist Reason Rally in Washington DC
The Reason Rally was a big experience for me. It was my first mission trip. The people I engaged with were fairly well read and many had developed hostility towards the Gospel. I was humbled when I did not always have the best answer (or an answer at all) or when I failed to maneuver conversations with wisdom and grace. I also found the balance of using scripture and extra-biblical apologetic arguments a tough line to walk in the heat of a conversation, but ultimately I trust in God's sovereignty over our errors and His Spirit's sanctifying power to give me greater discernment for evangelism in the future.
