My advice is - don't set out to offend other people or spoil their enjoyment of the park or open space. Respect everybody even those
who don't want you there. Give plenty of space for folk to walk on by, don't play too loud, engage everyone who speaks to you, don't
ignore anyone. We met a man with a hangover sitting on the bench we usually used one Sunday afternoon. His head was tender so
he didn't really want us to start playing anything, however quietly. Therefore we delayed five minutes and spent time just talking to him.
When we did start he left (probably went to lie down somewhere), but we had at least spent time sharing Jesus with him and we parted
on friendly terms. I can't emphasise enough how important it is that we be as gentle as doves.
1 Somewhere people go (not a lonely place)
2 Somewhere people relax (not a busy place)
3 Somewhere you can be heard (not a noisy place)
4 Somewhere you can worship (not a distracting place).
