Four Challenges to the Apologetic Life

For this posting, I found some of my notes from a few years ago, that caused me to reflect over the last several weeks of my life as a minister in the arena of auto sales. Before I get to that though, I would like to be a little transparent, and ask your prayers with what I am sharing.

Over the past several weeks, I have been trying to dig myself out of a rut of discouragement. Be rest assured though, this discouragement has NOT come from living out my Christian faith in my semi hostile job environment.

Quite the contrary, it has been a battle working long hours with some bright spots and highlights of conversations that the Lord has opened up. But my desire is for more time in a day to be able to share with you in this blog. Working long hours and coming home tired so that I have no energy to do what I am doing now.  And that weighed into the periodic spiritual battles we engage in make for a really wearying day.

But such are the joys in the midst of the raging of the cultural setting I find myself. So what's all this got to do with what what is following my asking for your prayers? Let me share with you some things on what it is like to live the apologetic life and things that you can engage in full force or in part.

Allow me to share with you four challenges that we have as apologists,
