This is were we are up to on our workers packs, they will include: Lovehearts, An information card on ecstacy, a few prayer request cards, marmite sachet, our information card, condoms, a general information sheet, lighters and a bible, I think that is pretty good. The love hearts and the info cards will cost about £90 each but we went ahead and ordered without the cash. You've got to have faith.
I read this today in Brennan Mannings "Ragamuffin Gospel" a classic I revisit from time to time it is from a book by Andrew Greeley "What a modern Catholic believes about God"
"Reject Christianity if you will out of motives of cynicism, turn away from it because you believe Reality is malign and punitive; choose a God that is cantankerous, vindictive, or forgetful, or determined to keep man in his place, if such a God is more to your choosing. If you cannot accept the idea that love is at the core of the universe, that is your privilege. If you do not believe that the absolute passionately wants to be our friend and our lover, then by all means reject such a seemingly absurd notion. If you do not believe that we have the enthusiasm, and the strength, and the courage, and the creativity to love one another as friends, then quickly cast aside such an incredible idea into the trash can. And if you think it is ridiculous that life will triumph over death, then don't bother with christianity, because you can't be a christian unless you believe that"
