Questions with a street corner evangelist
You’ve seen them out there. They stand on the corner across from Teaser’s and the Dog Eat Dog hot dog cart most Friday and Saturday nights. Almost like the guardians of Fourth Street they plunk down on the sidewalk with their signs and yell out to those who parade the street at night. But what are they doing there? Step forward and talk to them and you’ll realize they aren’t protesting anything – in fact it’s the opposite. These men are just trying to tell everyone about the love of Jesus Christ. If you’re lucky they’ll even hand you a free Bible tract.
One man among the group set out to spread the Good News last summer and has never looked back. His name is Karl Walters.
