How can one have a booth at a Fair and still be confessional and faithful? I think we have to work extremely hard to uphold our distinctiveness simply because we LOOK like the mop and antique guy next to us. How do we boldly proclaim the Gospel message in that setting, or do we just have a good time selling pies and handing out "What about?" booklets from Dr. A.L. Barry?
I believe that we can be faithful doing a fair booth. It starts with a sign that boldly proclaims our focus (maybe Christ-Centered, Cross Focused comes in). Then everything we do points people to the cross, the Scriptures, and the worship service. I thought of an idea to have a separate area for the pastor for, "Questions about the Christian faith? Ask the pastor." I do not know how many people would stop, but I can guarantee someone from our emergent culture would have a question or two.
Any other input on how to do a booth faithfully or discussions on other options, please leave a comment.
