Hayward Wesleyan Church is currently hosting the Alpha Course so there are quite a few posters and promotional material around our facility.
The other day a student asked me a funny question. She pointed to the picture on the Alpha poster and asked: “Why is there a dirty guy on that poster?”
In the span of 3 seconds, I laughed, wanted to inform, paused, thought about the use of the “dirty guy” through the lens of a child, laughed again, then tried to explain who Bear Grylls is and why he’s promoting Alpha.
About 10 seconds into my explanation, this student shrugged her shoulders, obviously dissatisfied with my explanation and walked away. Aww… good times!
