Talking to Those Jesus Misses the Most

Last Saturday a friend and I hit the streets with a mic, camcorder, and six $5 Starbucks Cards. We set a poster on an easel and settled in just downstream from Starbucks and across the street from Empire Books. Forty-five minutes later we had given all our $5 Starbucks Cards away, interviewed seven curious individuals, begged Security’s forgiveness, and handed 15 minutes of tape to the church-techie for editing.

I framed my questions around the Sunday sermon. Since we’re in a series on the book of Romans (specifically Romans 10) my questions revolved around what I felt were the key components of that chapter.

Once a month I take to the streets and talk to the people Jesus’ misses the most.

Our questions for the non-church-goer:

1. Do you think Christians bring Good News to the world?
2. Has a Christian every tried to save you? If so, how did it feel?

Our questions for the church-goer:

1. Can you give us your perception on righteousness?
2. Do you establish your own righteousness or does it seem to somehow mysteriously come from out side yourself?

I'd be interested in hearing the answers of the unreached to the question: "What do you think a Christian means when he/she uses the word 'saved'?"!
