STORIES FROM THE ROAD


July 06, 1997

FAKE $20

I got into Livingstone, Indiana around 5:30 p.m. I rode around town some to see if I could find a church that might have an evening service. I didn't see any signs telling me that there would be one. Along the way, I was stopped by a young teen boy who got out of a church van to slip me something.

I was sort of excited to think that maybe this was a "green handshake". I thought the boy had given me a twenty dollar bill but it wasn't. I thought that it was real since the front of it was like a real $20 bill. When I unfolded it, I was a bit frustrated and slightly angry.

Instead of it being real money, the fake bill was actually a tract from a local Baptist church. The top of the tract looked exactly like a twenty dollar bill and the way the boy handed it to me you could have sworn it was real. This really turned me off to the town of Livingstone.

Why did somebody think to do this? Couldn't they have opened up their eyes and see the crosses that I had on my safety vest? Don 't they understand that maybe this act of passing on something fake might turn people off to Christianity.
