Santa Monica is a strange place; it’s next to Venice Beach, and everyone knows that Venice Beach is very weird. The ironies are delicious. You have the super-rich protesting everything, while the homeless are on nearly every corner. (Satirist Harry Shearer says this as a sign-off line at the end of his radio program: “Le Show originates from Santa Monica: Home… of the homeless.”)
The 3rd St. Promenade, in the heart of Santa Monica, has thousands of visitors everyday, each with a different belief system on why humans exist—and it makes for a great day of sharing the Gospel. Meet at Hope Chapel at noon to carpool.
Below is a video featuring a very sad tattooed man named Lester. Surprisingly, he was very receptive to the Gospel.
