Linda Oppelt and I hung out one morning last month at our local Panera's while she interviewed me about the New Evangelization and my book, Forming Intentional Disciples, for our local Diocese of Colorado Springs Catholic newspaper.  You can read the results here. Here's a snippet of a much longer conversation:

Even though the church has a beautiful theology of evangelization, there’s very little existential connection for a lot of people. It’s the gap between the lived experience of the faith in the average parish for the average person, and what our theology says. I can articulate the theology all day but they can’t take it and go anywhere with it. There’s no connection with their lived experience.
