Many people feel God's special influence in their lives in direct or indirect ways.  This column seeks to bring you some of their inspirational stories.

  1. I used to do that when I was a new Christian, but I find it off putting. People do not really want to be preached to. I found it better to send a tract in a letter. Or in a birthday card or something like that. I can relate to the homeless mans fealings, I think feeding them is preaching more eloquently than any tract. Its a pity more pastors or church elders could not find the homeless and bring them into the congregation with a promice of a meal after.Maybe even offer a place to sleep. Its a touchy thing because then you are liable for anything that happens. In todays world nothing is simple.

  2. That's a great story. Happily, I think a lot of churches are starting to realize the quickest way to bring people to Christ is to meet their physical needs first. Thank you for a great post!
