« Finally Comes the Poet: The poet in the moment of preaching. | Main | Sisters of Sinai - best lecture I've heard in years! »

If I'm continuously cold called - by phone, or worse, on the doorstep, I find it actually puts me off the people / company doing it. I'm sure I can't be the only one.


Catherine Fox's advice: never hang up on cold callers. Simply ask them if they know Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour and they will hang up on you ;-)

I love the confused silence on the other end when they ask
Are you the owner of the house ...
no ...

so you are renting it ...
no ...

my mention of the church manse often gets the same result as Helen's more evangelical approach ... they just hang up.
