Leaflets for display stand....

I noticed this request on the message board for leaflets / booklets to put on an information stand - here are my thoughts...
They did one called Help - sometimes life hurts but it's no longer listed.

There are lots of other leaflets I've come across, and they mostly seem to concentrate on drugs or sex. I'd like to see someone working on some other issues that seem to be overlooked (at least from a Christian point of view):
If anybody knows of anything like that, let me know!

Before you set out a load of leaflets for your young people to browse, consider editing what information you should display and when. Some parents might object if you gave them access to certain leaflets - something you need to consider.

Clubbing talk

I've just finished the "clubbing talk" I've been working on. We're doing it tonight...hopefully it will stimulate a good discussion about the issues involved. We plan to follow this up with some kind of self-defence session before Christmas. Check it out here.

South West 9
  • Watched this last night...not a brilliant film, it does however show how been off your head can cause you to get into difficult situations...this guy called Mitch ends up nearly shooting someone after doing some LSD (he didn't realise).  The film seems to suggest that it messed his brain up big time...not just for the short term, but that there will be long term consequences.
Speaking of consequences...
