I think of witnessing as a continuum that runs from “anonymous” to “personal.” “Anonymous witnessing” includes the “Sure I’ll write a check!” response. “Personal witnessing” happens face-to-face, like what Jesus did. In between, there are many levels.
The Gospel Outreach Committee has dozens of resources with ideas for how to witness at your level in the continuum. The Monthly Mission Service Activities usually contain a section titled “Mercy in Action,” with practical ways to reach out to others.
The Year’s Worth of Mission Service Activities calendars contain a three-level approach. The “Making our Faith Meaningful” suggestion has an “extra credit” element, encouraging face-to-face activities.
Wherever you are in the continuum, be confident that the Holy Spirit is with you; be bold in your witness!
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies … that … God may be glorified (1 Peter 4:10–11a).
