PALAU SAYS HE PREACHES IN PARKS RATHER THAN STADIUMS

The Reverend Billy Graham preached to hundreds of thousands of people at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium over the weekend. But evangelist Luis Palau (pah-LAH'-oh) says he's switched from stadium crusades to festivals in city parks and open spaces "where the people are." That way, he says there's less a sense of passing through turnstiles and more of an atmosphere where people and families can walk up, enjoy games and entertainment and then hear a Gospel presentation. Palau travels to Minnesota this week, where he's to meet with Governor Tim Pawlenty and Twin Cities clergy in preparation for a festival in Riverside Park in August of 2004. His next U-S festival is planned for Charleston, South Carolina, in September.
