The following report comes to us from team leader with our team in Boise, ID:
It was chilly but sunny today which brought the crowds out downtown. Only evangelist Chuck and I made it out. I lost count but we gave away at least a dozen rosaries.
As I was setting up the table a man leaned over the display and declined a rosary because, he said, “I don’t believe in it.” I asked why not and he replied “because I’m a Christian.” He stormed away as I tried to engage him more. Pray he is willing to engage in a deeper conversation next time.
Later, another man (former Catholic) declined a rosary but stayed to talk for ten minutes. He wanted to know what my favorite “tenet” was. I extolled the Eucharist but it seems that was not what he was after. He said he was a physicist working on a unifying theory (not string theory) that took into account the spiritual. He believed the golden rule was the unifying principle God gave us and espoused a universalist view. Though he was not moved by our discussion pray that he will hear the Holy Spirit calling him back to Christ.
A man who was a former Catholic took a rosary and pamphlet but hurried off because he was looking for someone. Later he came by with the friend who received a rosary but said he was Christian, not Catholic, because he didn’t pray to saints. To my explanation he just replied that he was an evangelical. Later these two men brought three more men who all wanted rosaries. One was a Catholic and another was fascinated by the idea of praying the mysteries. May Mary draw them all closer to Christ.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
