“Philip received another prompting from the Holy Spirit: Holy Spirit: ‘Go over to the chariot and climb on board.’ So he started running until he was even with the chariot. Philip heard the Ethiopian reading aloud and recognized the words from the prophet Isaiah.

In this age of instant communication and information overload, it is vital for us to be able to explain the basic tenets of our faith. Most people we come in contact with do not have a solid foundation when it comes to studying the Bible.

Open and honest dialog can do wonders when it comes to breaking down barriers — but we must be humble in spirit.
