Questions to God are popping up on city buses across the country, and can now be seen in London as well.
All these signs are asking some pretty pertinent questions about life that only God can answer. Among the questions are “What’s for dinner God” “God, do you love me” and even “God, why am I here?”
The campaign, called Bus Stop Bible Studies, was founded by David Harrison in Toronto.
“The ads are just asking God those life questions that everyone has, and we hope it just initiates conversation,” says Harrison.
Harrison says that students at Centennial College played a massive part in creating the advertisements.
“You know, their creativity is what drives this campaign. It’s what gets people to look up and really start to ask themselves about God, and in doing so, they call us to find out more,” says Harrison.
Across every advertisement is a number relaying to the leader in their respective city. Florence Junop runs Bus Stop Bible Studies London.
“Students who are away from home have had some connection with the bible, but they don’t know about it, so they (students) come to us the most to find out more about God,” says Junop.
According to Junop, Bus Stop Bible Studies is not about converting individuals, but to enlighten them about the word of God.
“We feel students are best with students and trying to take them from their background to a different culture is not what we want to do. We only want them to read the word of God and to see for themselves if this is the truth.”
David Harrison says he will continue to grow the campaign. He estimates the advertisements, which can be seen from Toronto to Vancouver, have been seen over 500 -million times. He says that while there aren’t any immediate plans to expand, he does hope he can take the campaign internationally.
