Description

Make use of the rain and offer people shelter under your golfing style umbrella. When the rain fell I walked with people from one side of the square to the other, which included 2 mums and 4 children on their way to Mothercare. I even walked with a man to the train station and listened to what he had to say about faith, and then he also asked me what I believed.

Rationale

As I did this people asked why, and I simply shared with them a verse from an old Psalm that reveals a charecteristic of God as the One who shelters and protects us.

My action of walking with people as the rain fell, was to somehow re-enact that verse.

‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.’ Psalm 91.1

Outcome

For those who were protected from the wet, as I walked with them, they saw the theology before their eyes. The umbrella became a symbol of something far greater than a means to staying dry.
