Methodists evangelize; use appropriate cliches

I am certainly glad to see that The United Methodist Church in Lithuania is seeking to evangelize in the name of Christ, saying that every Lithuanian should "know God personally" and that The United Methodist congregations there are a great place to learn to do so. Of course, I am glad to see that, and am not one bit surprised to find that it is an Asbury grad that is heading the thing up. I also noted that the description uses all of the appropriate catch-phrases and cliches of our church today: the commercials and tracts being used are "relevant" to Lithuanians today and we must keep in mind how "inclusive" Jesus was in reaching out to people. I will have to look again but I am sure there must be some talk about the value of "diversity" as well. Sigh.
