Preaching with a bar for a pulpit.

"The service that night...was held in the most unusual setting in which I have ever preached. It was a sort of recreation hall where an improvised bar had been set up, where the men got beers and other drinks. It was the only assembly hall in the area large enough, so the men all gathered there.... They asked me if I could make out in such a setting and I told them I would preach anywhere the men would assemble, So I walked up front, leaned my back against the bar and began to preach Christ to them. I soon forgot I was in a bar and I believe the men did too."
