Street Evangelization was practiced by Jesus, the Apostles and His first disciples. It included:
1. calling people to follow Christ immediately (kerygmatic preaching with power of conversion; Jesus, the Apostles, early Church),
2. preaching to move the hearts of the hearers by sharing stories, parables, culturally relevant ideas,
3. recognizing the needs of people and responding: power healings and resurrections, miracles, words of encouragement, feeding the hungry,
4. loving all unlovable: sick, old, homeless, socially ostracized
We are starting to pray about the forms and times where Jesus is asking us to labor with Him in this activity.
