3.15 am at the end of an unusually quiet night and everyone is quietly heading home. Perhaps we should do the same.

Then a vivacious young lady rushes up to say Street Pastors, you are wonderful. I want to do what you do but I am told I have to know Jesus and I haven’t met Him yet. But I want to and I am sure I will.

She is interrupted by a friend rushing up to be greeted with a hug. At this point an alert team member (well done) pulls out a “Knowing God personally” leaflet. The girl accepts this gratefully, then says “Have you heard of Soul Survivor”? I reply “Yes, it’s brilliant!'” “Well, I will go to it then” she says and she heads off to join her waiting friends.

Leaving us exhilarated. “So that’s why we are still here”!
