I am walking down the street in Oxford, England. I am coming back from a speaking engagement in Oxford Brooks Uni, where I met with a bunch of grad students and talked about hydration and nutrition in recovery. I notice a small older man, similar to me, with a small folding table, set up next to the street. The man has a small portable PA system around his neck.
None of the above, Maurice Simpson is a Christian on a mission. He tells me he is merely trying to win as many souls into The Kingdom as he can. I notice his table has many tracts in Arabic. “Yes” he agrees, “The Muslims are more spiritually minded, and they esteem Jesus as a Prophet.”
I ask him if he is Anglican. “No, not really”, he says with a smile, “My wife and I just try to follow the Bible in all things.”
I unzip my backpack and dig out my LAST remaining “Jesus film” CD which has the film in about 8 languages and give it to Maurice. He beams.
“Perhaps together we can help someone into The Kingdom”.
Perhaps we can…
