When not all your family is Christian at Christmas

I am winding down my career as a weekly podcaster with just three live shows left to go!  I'll be sad to see it end in a way, because I simply adore reaching out to my listeners and teaching on a live show.  It's been a blast even though it's taken quite a bit of my free time.  (Wait..."free time"? I'll have to look that up again.  I keep forgetting what that is!) This Thursday is a very special show.  Do you have members of your family who are not Christians this Christmas?  Have you tried to share your faith with them this year?  Do you worry about how you'll get along at the family Christmas gathering?  Do they fear having anyone bring up their salvation each time the family gets together?  I know what that's like.  I'm one of the only Christians in my family.  Whether you have never shared the Gospel with that special family member and you feel lead to do so this Christmas or your family has tried to several times but you notice him cringe when he walks in the door or anything in between, this show is for you! How do we share the faith with family members?  When should we try?  When should we not?  I'll be sharing these and other questions about "When not all your family is Christian at Christmas" on the next Communication Comedy Network's Talk Talk Show. If you have an experience to share or if you have a question, please call in! The Talk Talk Show: "The Talk Show About Talking" is on the Communication Comedy Network Thursdays at 8am PST/11am EST. You can listen in live via your computer just by clicking this link and following the prompts or you can call into the show via phone by dialing: (724) 444-7444 and the Call ID: 19736 followed by the # sign when prompted. This is one of my very last podcasts ever. I'll be going off the air as far as podcasting goes after this year.  I will attempt to post the audios for those who cannot make it to the live show, however, I have had some trouble periodically with hecklers whose foul mouths have caused me to opt NOT to post the audio.  While Talk Shoe does allow me the ability to mute someone, it does not provide the tools to edit your broadcast easily. For this reason, I urge you to attend the live show.  I promise to filter my callers as best I can during the live show.  The feedback from last week's show (and the ones with prior hecklers) has shown that their time was well spent despite the momentary lapse in decorum.  The things I share will be tips from one of the most important studies I have ever written, "Say What You Mean: Defending the Faith".  I usually sell this information but I feel the need to give some of it away this Christmas season in order to help my listeners enjoy a Merry CHRISTmas with both their saved and unsaved family members.  If something I share during this show will allow just one soul to come to know Christ Jesus, it will be well worth enduring a heckler on the air. Remember, even if I am able to post the audio, all of the Communication Comedy Network audios will be coming down after the first of the year anyway when I transition to hosting 10-12 full seminar/workshops in 2010.  So don't count on that audio!  Be there live and, if you have a special story to share that relates to my topic, please post it here so I can share it on the show or call in to the live show! God bless you all this Christmas from the Art of Eloquence.com family to yours!

    That should be a great show. I"m sorry, but Thursday is a bit busy for me, so I probably won’t make it.

    I think it can be difficult. I remember Christmas growing up was such a simple happy time (for me as a kid anyway.) It has become much more complicated.

    Have a good show!

    We have both Christians and non-christians. Even amongst the Christians are doctrinal and lifestyle differences that can be challenging at times. Using tact or keeping to myself is the way I prefer to go. Although sometimes, we wish to opt out of gatherings but choose to go to honor and keep the peace.

    I think I’m rare – all of our family members are Christians! Both sides!! And all of my cousins and nieces and nephews too! But just because of that fact doesn’t mean everybody sees eye to eye on everything – people are still human beings and not perfect! Have a great show on Thursday – busy week for me – and Thursday is the day before my busiest!! I’ll look forward to hearing what everyone said!
