Examiner.com article: Local student builds relationships in Belgium music scene

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “Local student builds relationships in Belgium music scene.”

The article is about my friend Josh (who graduated from college in the Raleigh area). Josh is building relationships with people in the Belgium music scene, and because of their shared love of music, he is finding that those relationships become deep much faster than normal.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

But, Christians do not have to go to Beligium, or Africa, or Asia to find people who need a living example of the gospel. The world has come to Raleigh. All we have to do is walk out our front door (or leave our church buildings) and find neighbors, coworkers, and friends who either believe in nothing or everything.

Of course, like Josh, we also have to be willing to enter their world and meet them where they are. In Josh’s case, this means sharing a love of music.
