Last Sunday morning was a bit of a laugh… great fun. Hang on, I was doing street evangelism… should it have bene fun and a laugh?! Well, it was. I think we should just get over it, letting people into the news of the most amazing person that has ever and will ever live is…fun, exhilarating, vital, challenging, nail-bittingly nerve-racking, exhilarating and fun.
So this is what we did, we took a maze out into the city centre of Peterborough and challenged people to find the treasure in the middle. The treasure was a copy of the gospel of Mark and some sweets too for the children who took part. I had many conversations about God, and people appreciated what we did and described it in ways like: ‘novel’ (!) ‘up to date in letting people know about Jesus’ ‘fun way of learning about God.’ I must admit, the crazy maze did all the hard work, people just came up and said, ‘what are you doing?’ or ‘why have you got a huge maze in the middle of the street for?’
