Tract 5, day 4

A man stopped to tell me how long he had been saved for, he is a street evangelist and has been a Christian for 41 years. It was such an awkward conversation as at no point did I feel I could say I am an atheist. He obviously identified with the aesthetic of street evangelism that I have adopted and spoke to me as if we shared our beliefs. This work has really made me question how to share beliefs on the street without imposing them on the person you are sharing with.

On a practical level the sign is easier to hold when balanced properly but it really restricts the number of tracts I distribute. Perhaps I will have a vest made but I am struggling with what I would have written on it to ensure it can be used with all tracts. I would love your thoughts on this!
