Description

This is a simple idea which involves an old spare sofa, a simple sign, and the willingness to listen.

All you have to do is place a sofa in an appropriate pedestrian area, sit on the sofa and offer to listen to people.

Rationale

The listening approach to evangelism, builds relationship, invests time, care and attention to individuals. Life for many is frenetic and people seldom meet someone who will listen to them. This act of humility values the speaker over the listener.

Outcome

People are attracted by the unusual sight of a sofa on the high street. It helps create communication. People are listened to and cared for.

Other requirements

This active idea does not have any additional requirements
