Christmas is usually a great time to spread cheer and our faith. I love giving religious gifts, such as a nativity set (for newlyweds), good Catholic book (for friends) or Veggie Tale DVDs (for children) because it incorporates the reason for the season with the gifts given.
[font=Arial]However, is it appropriate to give these gifts to non-practicing Catholic friends or their children? Most of my non-practicing friends still say they have a spiritual life, so they might appreciate the gifts. I would love to use the opportunity to evangelize, but don’t want to offend. In general, is it a good or bad idea to give religious gifts to non-religious friends?[/font]
