Here is a picture of my eldest daughter and her friend on the sidelines of last weekend’s Veterans Parade in Long Beach. She had to get up several hours earlier than usual for this event, but after an all-nighter at our church’s Jr. High sleepover, she was wiped out. When I shouted, “D. D.! D. D.! Get up!” they slept on. When the marching band with the pounding, rhythmic drummers passed by, they slept on.
So I redeemed their rest….
A few strategically-placed Gospel tracts just might sow the seed of salvation for some wayward parade-goer.
R. A. Torrey wrote this a hundred years ago in a great article called: “The Use of Tracts”:
Oftentimes people who are too proud to be talked with, will read a tract when no one is looking. There is many a man who would repulse you if you tried to speak to him about his soul, who will read a tract if you leave it on his table, or in some other place where he comes upon it accidentally, and that tract may be used for his salvation.
This Saturday we will take it a little easier by going to the Redondo Beach Pier. If it rains, then off we’ll go to LAX. Meet at Hope Chapel at noon to carpool.
- Of course, every Thursday we go to El Camino College and meet on the Library Lawn. We now bring our Prayer Stand and copies of the “180″ movie to hand out, as well as Randy Alcorn’s book, “Why Pro-Life?”
- Fridays we always go to the Redondo Beach Pier as well for only one hour. Meet at Hope Chapel at 4:30 to carpool.
