Real Talk


It’s something I’ve never felt real comfortable doing – talking to a stranger about my faith. But a while ago I decided to challenge myself to step out my comfort zone.

Hey, writing about something is completely different from talking about it.

When I heard Sparks Christian Fellowship was asking members to sitdown for a one-on-one interview, called “Real Talk,” I submitted my name.

SCF wanted feedback in a couple of different areas. The first was to see where church members were in their walk with Christ — and secondly they wanted to know each persons passion.

It sounded very simple from where I sat Sunday morning as I filled out my participation slip. It didn’t take very long for Jeff Greenblat to reach out to me and ask if we could meet.

Honestly, I had no idea what to expect with regard to the questions I was going to be answering or even if I’d feel comfortable with the person doing the interviewing. There were several questions that I was asked to answer, however I remember only five of them:

  1. What do I enjoy doing?
  2. Where do I see God at work right now?
  3. What would I like to see God do in my life over the next six to 12 months?
  4. How do I see myself serving other?
  5. How can the church help me?

What I figured would be half-an-hour to 45-minutes grew into nearly two-hours of conversation. Answering these questions wasn’t painful at all.

I’ve come away thinking everyone should spend a little time answering these questions for themselves.
