Anyone up for some open air evangelism? To the protestors, to the Cathedral staff, to passers-by… Does 2pm sound a stupid time?
And what do you think should be our angle? How do we make it clear that Jesus aint on either side? (Who wants to dress up as Jesus by the way – we could make a “Not in my name” placard!)
It seems to me that tax collectors and sinners (white collar criminals and flagrant law-breakers) both flocked to Jesus. There was actually an alliance of the greedy and the groovy around Jesus. Meanwhile the religious in their long flowing robes grumbled. How do we model and proclaim that?
Lines that are running through my mind…
“What St Paul really said”
“The City that really counts”
“Those aren’t the money-changers, and this aint the temple”
“Money is not the root of all evil – love of it is. It’s a heart problem and it starts with me.”
