A Simple Bag Of Snacks

Paul Winter, Operation Joy, visits Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester city centre most Sunday afternoons. You'll find him engaging in lively conversation, as happened recently.

One Sunday in Piccadilly Gardens I found a couple of groups to speak with. 'A' is a Muslim who said if he was to convert it would be to a Mormon. Good discussion with this man as we talked about his spiritual journey. Others politely listened in and a couple expressed their views, these kinds of discussions certainly keep us on our toes. The way into the conversation is usually triggered by just carrying a simple bag of snacks.
