We used to go door knocking in our area but for various reasons we stopped and changed our focus to another area of evangelism. Increasingly, we were seeing signs on people’s doors with some reference to people going door to door. People no longer want to be bothered, it seems. One community near Detroit, Michigan is considering a step in that direction.
After the murder of an 80-year-old woman in her home last fall, the City of Royal Oak is looking into possibly adopting a so-called community “no knock” list in an attempt to tighten the limits on door-to-door solicitors. WWJ Newsradio 950 spoke with Royal Oak City Attorney Dave Gillam. “A homeowner would have the ability to have their name and address put on that list. And, essentially, that would make it illegal or unlawful for a solicitor to approach someone at that address for commercial purposes,” Gilliam said.
Can you see this becoming a standard law? I can. Mass media is the wave of future but it lacks that personal touch that face to face interaction brings. What do you think is the answer?
