14. use the Beatitudes
in my humble opinion, the most eloquent and moving words in the Bible. And for a Christian, straight from Jesus'.

for example,

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God

Matthew 5, verse 9

or you could paraphrase it - I've seen this a lot - and I get a lot of discussion from my own t-shirt with it -

Who Would Jesus Bomb?

I've actually had some of them stop and tell me that they never thought of it that way. It's a bit scary to me that if their leaders don't tell them, they don't get it - but hey, thank God for folks like you that are willing to be the messenger.

Good Luck to you!
