Christian Voices is a new local community apologetics publication based in Winnipeg. “Apologetics” comes from the Greek word “apologia,” which means “to give a defense” or “to give an account of” something. Christianity has a long history of being questioned, critiqued and criticized. In 1 Peter 3:15, the apostle Peter tells us how we must “always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within” us. The apostles did this wherever they went as they spread The Gospel. As Christians, we are called upon to do the same.
Apologetics is about learning how to have conversations with people who are curious about the faith and who might ask some hard questions. It’s about dialogue and good communication. “Community apologetics,” then, is about us having that conversation with our broader community as a whole. Christian Voices is a chronicle of that conversation.
