INDOOR OPEN AIR
As most of you know I recently lost my job due to the financial crisis. My boss was really sad to let me go and asked if there was anything he could do for me. I was inspired by James McDonald's great preaching while he has cancer, and John Piper's book "Don't Waste Your Life" and my WWRCD bracelet (what would Ray Comfort do). I asked for 5 minutes in the lunch room to speak to all the workers on my last day. The subject - the bigger crisis that's coming - the law of sin and death. It was scary for several reasons - it was not in public space, these were people who spoke with me often, and I had to do it in Danish. There was about 30-40 people in the lunch room of which 2 stormed out of the room in disgust. The rest sat and listened. What follows is the video my wife took of what happened - I have inserted subtitles to help you along.
One funny thing that I found out after I finished. 2 words that look almost identical but are very different.
Faldskaerm = Parachute
Fladskaerm = Flat screen television
Guess what I told everyone to cling to when they jump out of that plane.
That's right - I told them to trust Jesus like they would a flat screen television!! It seems they got the point anyway and made allowances for my struggle with the Danish language.
I hope this is an encouragement not to waste the preaching opportunities that arise out of unfortunate circumstances.
