Subway preacher

"Subway preacher, Brooklyn," Tim Connor, All rights reserved

Another handoutman (woman) portrait. Her handout was "Fifty-seven cents that made history," published by the Old Paths Tract Society. As always, I almost walked past her because I was afraid. When I got up the courage to ask if I could take her picture, she gave me a big smile & nodded yes. Then she posed, silently demure. I asked her if she would please go ahead & preach. She launched into it, full force.

almost walked past because you were afraid......yes, indeed.....and confronting that fear is what makes these work, for us, and I suspect for you as well.
