What I should have said

M. comes up to me. “Can you believe it? On of my friends said she couldn’t come to St. Barts because we have Buddhists here.”

“That’s too bad. Of course, if she doesn’t want to be here, then I don’t need that kind of worry.”

“I thought maybe I shouldn’t be her friend.”

“No, you can witness to her.”

I wanted to say either:

“They’ve got plenty of churches they can join.” Which isn’t exactly a pro-growth attitude.

But really, if you can’t share the space of your church, which is easy, can you even share the gospel? Jesus only types don’t engage non-Christians very often.
