Conspiracy of Kindness: A Unique Approach to Sharing the Love of Jesus. Conspiracy of Kindness - Steve Sjogren. Jesus said, By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35)

Conspiracy of Kindness: A Unique Approach to Sharing the Love of Jesus. Jesus said, By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35). This verse is often interpreted as a call to unity in the Body of Christ. God certainly wants us to love other believers, but Jesus’ call goes far beyond those narrow boundaries. He called the disciples to love one another because the world instinctively recognizes us as followers of Jesus when we demonstrate that love for all to see. By Offering to Do.

Steve Sjogren, Los Angeles, California. Let s face it the world is in desperate need of the healing power of kindness. Small things done with great love will change the world. Given today s rampant cultural polarization, that need has become critical and we believe God's Kindness. Why? Let s face it the world is in desperate need of the healing power of kindness.

The "conspiracy of kindness" operates on a simple premise: Loving deeds done by unassuming Christians convince more people of the love of God than all the words in the world. If evangelism doesn’t seem to be your gift or you’re burned out on trying to share the gospel, try Servant Evangelism. It works!

Many years ago, I sat under Steve Sjogren's teaching in the Cincinnati. I was there when he developed the principles in Conspiracy of Kindness. I saw how people a church and a community were changed over time. This book is a great guide for learning how to reach out and serve people. I highly recommend it along with many other books Steve Sjogren has written.

Of particular interest might be his "The Day I Died." I also witnesses nearly losing a friend and a pastor to watching his miraculouis recovery to once again be to lead and teach the sheep entrusted to him.

For the one review that says it's unrealistic...it's puzzling. Pure and simple this *WORKS*. I got this book shortly after joining the Cincy Vineyard. There are few things that truly change lives but things in this book work. It's not a book about mega-churches, for the strange thing is even though there's multiple services and thousands of people it gives church HOME a whole new meaning. The advantage to big churches...more people to do more things to give more things away!

There are things that aren't captured in the book that I feel worth mentioning here. I've been on many of the servant evangalism things as described in this book - and the phrase God works in mysterious ways is so often coined and cast aside. I've seen people come for help, and salvation, from receiving a can of Coke at an intersection 18 months earlier. I've seen people in tears from receiving a bag of groceries; I've seen first hand this isn't just a book of "look how well our church is doing" - it's a book that is meant to be a workbook - it's meant to DO things. People are astounded when you wash their windshield for free...when you go into the small businesses and give little treats or wash their bathrooms there's the head tilt and "what kind of church ARE you?!" I mean who volunteers to do bathrooms (and actually has fun doing it)?! Who thought wrapping Christmas gifts or receiving lightbulbs would change someone's life? Packaging school supplies to give away to low income families is humbling to realise there are people even in affluent America that are hard working and struggle to get paper, pencils and a notebook for their kids for school. Giving bottled water to visitors at festivals or a newspaper is consumable things that don't last the day - but the message it gives can stick with the recipient much longer. These things work - it's unexpected. There were times people tried to give something back - which defeated the gift of doing something for nothing...so the gift of a pack of sodas became another gift giving to people as their car filled with gas. The gift of time and small acts is something that is so often lost today.
I highly recommend this book and, having been blessed with the opportunity to attend the Cincy Vineyard (as well as others) it is something that has a ripple effect - the giving is infectious. THAT makes changes. Get this book, get some small groups together...give the gift of service year round...every weekend can be Christmas with giving the gifts of time and small things.

This is one of those key books on evangelism in this post-modern age. Sjogren (pronounced Sho-grin) has been involved in church planting in three areas of the U.S. and overseas in Oslo, Norway. He is presently launching a new church plant. He shows how a church can make a unique impact by the simplicity of being kind and doing things for people.

Sjogren's concern is that the church be servant in spirit and live like the good Samaritan, he clarifies, "In other words, the way we (the Church) treat them (the un churched) serves as a litmus test of our spiritual health." (p. 86). The key is "servant evangelism" which means "demonstrating the kindness of God by offering to do some act of humble service with no strings attached." P. 18.

Chapter five is called "Five Discoveries That Empower Evangelism" and they are simple and yet needy.

Sjogren is not an armchair evangelist but someone who has effectively done and taught evangelism. He shares his past failures and his present experiences.

In Appendix 1, he lists a number of ways that Christians and churches can do servant evangelism and make a difference for the kingdom of God.

This book has changed the way I see my own neighborhood and what I am to do to make a difference here.

My own evangelism model is three steps: Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ. The "Act of "Kindness" approach is an excellent way to make and be a friend rapidly with many.

Practical ways to show the love of God in a very "practical" way. Worth the time and solid wisdom to be gleaned
