Today in the street I met a Christian who had a stall; he was shouty and he had a sign to tell people how bad they were.

I also met a Muslim who had a stall: he discussed things with me politely, gave me a Qu'ran, and put it in a gift bag.

Brother and sister Christians, we have a lot to learn.

And while we're on the subject-- how many churches do we have in the middle of marketplaces and shopping streets which stand locked while people walk by? Would it be so difficult to ask people to staff a stall at the gate, to talk to anyone who needed to talk and to give away books if people asked? How can we make this happen in churches across the country?

The owner of a pizza store I occasionally visit is a Christian; he makes his wife's Christian music CDs available at his store, has stories on the walls about some of his missionary work, and will discuss Christianity politely if you ask. I'm not a Christian, and will not become one, but I do appreciate his positive approach.
