Fr. Robert Barron on Effective Evangelization

This is brilliant!  First the joy, then the ethics.  But ethics is fundamentally and from the start about joy, happiness, what it takes for humans to flourish.  What Fr. Barron argues in terms of effectiveness (and hence strategy) in evangelization is true also in principle, in terms of ethics as moral philosophy.  (A wonderful, comprehensive treatment of ethics from a Christian perspective is Servais Pinckaers, O.P., Sources of Christian Ethics.)
