Romford was busy today with buskers and shoppers so Chuck and I (the only team members present) went to the "green door", as we can preach without hindering shop fronts or pedestrians.  After we prayed, I spoke from Mark 7 while Chuck handed out tracts, then we swapped.  

While Chuck spoke, I had a number of different people chat to me about the tracts I was handing out.  I asked a man who was a buddhist some tough questions about absolutes in morality and he really didn't want to engage the conversation or justify his position.  I met a pantheistic type of lady who told me I was wrong to make people fearful of hell and that god is in all of us etc.  Her self righteousness was couched deep in a quasi humility.  She did not like the idea of being branded a sinner in violation of 
Gods law and she also walked off, after not wishing to deal with tough questions on absolutes.  The last person I spoke to was a lady who had a tough upbringing, and while initially trying to deny breaking laws like lying and thieving, she succumbed to not honoring God with heart, soul and mind, as the first and greatest commandment.  She listened to the Gospel, thanked me and took tracts.  SDG!!
