The big "IF"

A thought woke me in my sleeping hours last night.

The Five Points Association, Inc. of Columbia, SC is anticipating 40,000 people to party this weekend in at the St. Pat’s in Five Points festival (10,000 more than last year).

There are approximately 661 places of worship in Columbia alone (not counting Lexington or West Columbia.)

Assuming that at least 450 of those places of worship are evangelical, with a combined membership average of 300 (I’m really shooting in the dark here), that represents 135,000 people.

If each one of those 135,000 people told at least one person in Five Points about Jesus, they could still reach another 2 people NOT at the party before the day was over . . .
