Two friends of mine were preaching the Gospel at the University of Oregon. No one would stop to listen. A couple people yelled profanity at them, but that was it. The next week we asked people to evaluate the speakers just so that we could share the Gospel one to one. We even offered people [...]

Wishing to remember

September 23, 2015

Saturday Market’s free speech area was jammed with people. There were people selling glass pipes, crystals, and wooden jewelry boxes. A few had what looked like a junk drawers worth of stuff laid out in front of them to sell.
I set up where I was going to share the Gospel, and do a money for [...]

The Bible says…

July 13, 2015

I’d just shared the Gospel with a group at the Free Speech Plaza in Eugene. I prayed for Roy who counsels teens in the Juvenile Justice System. Then, one of the guys who had been listening to me said…
“Hey, Christian, preacher guy. Or,… are you a minister?”
“Hi, I’m Tim. I believe what the Bible says [...]

Not understanding

May 26, 2015

Two guys stopped by the whiteboard. One had come by many times, and had received tracts, science articles, and talked with us numerous times and hearing the Gospel over and over. He rejects it every time.
His friend hadn’t been by before. As he started claiming to know things from science, I asked him, “How do [...]

What happens when people show up at the U of O with signs and a huge poster of an aborted baby?

Your story

February 13, 2015

Do Christians automatically know how to share the Gospel?
According to Ephesians 4:11-12 evangelists are to equip the saints for service for the building up of the body of Christ. Apparently Christians do need some training in this area.
A Christian can tell someone what happened, or what convinced them to follow Christ. That might be helpful, [...]

Dying before Yom Kippur

January 15, 2015

“So, who are you guys with?” Sophie asked.
We were fishing at the University of Oregon, using the whiteboard.
“We’re here on our own. We do a different question each week. If people want to stop and talk, we talk with them. If they want to talk more, I give them the Good Person Test.”
“What’s the Good [...]

Work of the Law

December 5, 2014

Devin said he was a good person.
After asking him about lying, stealing, blasphemy, murder, and adultery, he realized he was guilty of 4 out of 5 of those commandments. He said he would be guilty on judgment day, but that God would send him to Heaven.

Whatever it takes

October 29, 2014

Recently students at the U of O who give out the Daily Emerald have been getting creative.
They’ve tried different accents. “Neusepaypuh suh?”
…different reasons to take one. “Get a newspaper, it acts like an umbrella too!”
“Come on, take one. It has crosswords and sudoku!”
This week the costumes started to come out; a banana, and [...]

Inviting to Church

September 24, 2014

We were challenged to invite people to church for BACK TO CHURCH SUNDAY. So, who do you invite? What Christians do you know of who don’t go to church yet? Or, who have quit going to church? I didn’t know any.
I decided on two neighbors. One had just moved in, the other had been there [...]
