Hmm I wouldn't say thats a good question.. perhaps a tricky one. I am not a person to use props and what not so I would have to do it with solo voice. I was reading a biography of George Whitefield and it has me so fired up I really want to just go out there and be able to preach to a mass of people. I have to be patient for Gods will and His gifting for the circumstances also. I do feel I will have opportunities quite soon.

 Re: Open air preaching

Jon and Miles, you guys are awesome! Your posts are great testimonies. Jon, yours about being unsaved although being a pastor-- what a story. We're watching your progress and praying with you.

You can get gospels of John free to distribute at [url=]The Pocket Testament League[/url]. Rocklife first told us about this. I've given away almost all of my first order! Next, I may have to try reading from The Message Bible in public... do you think a middle-aged mom could swing that? Catherine Booth and her daughters did a lot of singing but I don't know if they preached in public. What do you think? Oh, my poor husband and kids, what they have to cope with :-P

Mrs. Fred,

I am pretty sure that Catherine Booth preached. Go for it.

Greg, I know you will preach open air one day, but the sooner the better. All that the props do is draw a crowd, and if you have no crowd, you have no one to preach to. Even Spurgeon used props from time to time; I heard of a coffin he used with a mirror in it--an effective illustration that Miles and I have talked about replicating. But the style is not important; it's the substance that counts. Develop the message and then take it to the streets. And let us know when you do so we can pray for you.

I've read that Catherine Booth preached the gospel in public as often as her husband did! Go for it, Mrs. Fred! My family hasn't quite gotten used to the idea that I open air preach, and they haven't seen me yet, either. I think they are more comfortable not having to actually see it done! ;-)
