5/8/11 Asher, Victor 24, 25
I met Asher and Victor as they sat down for a beer outside Ashton's storefront-turned-apartment at the end of a warm Sunday afternoon. They seemed to be a mix of starving artist/musician/ science geeks. They started out answering my questions about their beliefs as rather strong atheists, mocking those with faith in God and mocking God directly. Usually my hope is simply to help people like this to doubt their atheist faith and begin to see the evidence of God's existence all around them. This can take a while as we work through what they believe and point out some of the poor logic on which these beliefs are based. Today I had some extra time and we talked for well over an hour, and they gradually began to talk like God's existence is not just possible but probable, wondering how they could have a right relationship with him. They really enjoyed the conversation and wanted to come check out my church, so i invited them. They had a few more beers as we talked so I didn't take their positive change of attitude too seriously, but still, God is at work.
