Evangelical without Evangelizing

I think this is great.  A church sprucing up a public school.  No problem.  And. . .as a former Evangelical. . .I would like a bit more conversation about the intention.  Helping is helping, and should be commended.  If there is any intention of drawing members, or “blessing the school with bibles” or something. . .then of course there would be church/state problems (and, I would say, ethical problems).  Otherwise, “rather than point a finger, lend a hand!”
