Roy, the evangelizing barber


Ray was a barber in the Bronx who paid close attention at his parish whenever the topic of evangelization was discussed.

Last Sunday Ray thought he should be doing more to share his faith with his customers. The next morning he told the Lord in prayer, “Today I’m going to witness to the first customer who walks through my door.”

A man came in as he opened his shop and said, “I need a shave.”

Ray said, “Yes sir! Just have a seat and I’ll be right with you.”

He went in the back and prayed a quick prayer saying, “Lord, the first customer just came in and I’m going to witness to him. Give me the wisdom to know just the right thing to say. Amen.”

Then Roy came out with his straight razor in one hand and a Bible in the other and told his customer, “I have a question for you: Are you ready to meet your Maker?”
