the story you told about hanging out at the club was so hilarious. and trying to have conversations with people. i laughed really hard. "club" people are really funny. it's good you didn't do the street preacher thing. i've seen that go bad in other big cities, it doesn't communicate well. i've seen preachers pointing at people who he said were doomed. i've seen street preachers get into shouting matches with passers-by. i've seen youth groups trying to pass out tracks to drunk people. i've actually been a door-knocker, inviting people to church events.

this stuff just doesn't work if it's not relational.

That's very true. i've been a tract hander-outer as well, and it isn't very effective, from what i've seen. Relationships are key.

i was in Boston a few years ago, and we saw a street preacher right off of the subway station in Harvard, and there were about 20 punks (leather jackets, red mohawks, chains, the like) around the guy, and they were all yelling at each other.

Effective.

We saw a hellfire and brimstone street preacher outside of Faneuil Hall in Boston. Phil hollered something at him while we were passing by. He says he doen't remember it though.

I remember it, Indie. I was the street preacher.

Kidding.
