Probably due to the fact I've been working from my business partner's home for the past seven years, and haven't done much socially the past three years.  Also, lost touch with most friends, Christian & nonbeliever over the years.

 

So when encouraged to bring invite nonbeliever friends to something, I can't. Heh.

 

Anyone else in this situation?  Thought it might be interesting to discuss.  Thanks.

My producer was a buddhist, lol but he got married and moved to D.C. I guess my family and co-workers, maybe one or two non-believer friends, but I haven't seen them in a while.

Perhaps you do know some people... How about the checkout clerk at the grocery store? Or the sales person at the gas station? Or perhaps joining a social media website (i.e. Facebook, MySpace, etc) and reconnecting with friends you lost touch with? Just a few suggestions... :thumbsup:

 

Sometimes meeting nonbelievers in many settings has to be intentional.

God bless,

Thanks for the replies.  BoPeep, hope things are going OK in that situation.  When I think back, I used to be in that situation as well.

Almost everyone I knew were nonbelievers, and I only knew Christians through church, here, etc.

 

Eagle: good point.  I forgot I do interact with nonbelievers on Gamefaqs, one of the top forums for video games.  I try to reflect Christ in discussions there and have a Bible passage in my signature to hopefully make a difference.

I have a lot of non-Christian friends.

Sometimes I ask myself, am I becoming too worldly?

However, with some of them, I know I'm their only Christian connection.
