What an evening!

It started when I arrived at Zac's to find two policemen outside the door interviewing two of our 'congregation'; it finished with a lady telling me she used to lure men down alleyways with the promise of sex and when there would pull down their trousers, steal their wallets and run.

And there was everything in between.

It was chaos and God was there in amongst it up to his armpits in mud.

Brilliant!

Blimey that is a story!!!!

I was telling my Christian friend about Zacs.. or at least trying too. What exactly is Zacs? My friend goes to the Prison to talk to inmates and try to help them.

Somebody once spelled out in explicit details the mechanics of "clipping" ~~ it was hilarious.

A lot of the girls used to claim to do that. Which was ridiculous as you just cannot do that as a regular thing in the same area. You'd get your head kicked in. I said "look I won't think any less of you for working"... but one in particular STILL insisted she was "just clipping".

Clipping. Makes her sound like a clippie. A bus conductor. Doesn't it!

Anne - here's a good place to start, http://www.exousia.demon.co.uk/content/zacs.htm

There's some extra links below the initial paragraphs with some history and other details.

The media page also has some links to other peoples articles / blogs with their own observations of Zac's which is here,
http://www.exousia.demon.co.uk/content/media.htm Hope that helps - I still find it difficult to explain in a few words!!

Liz: I cannot say it any better than this chorus from a Lynda Randle song:

"For the God on the mountain is still God in the valley.
When things go wrong, He'll make it right.
And the God of the good times
is still God in the bad times.
The God of the day is still God in the night."

That is what Christinaity should be all about. I'm sure God understood.

Ah, Liz, you certainly lead a more exciting life than I do:)

Hope you found the stuff that sean referred you to helpful, anne.

I asked this lady if she ever got beaten up, gledwood, and she said no. I think it was because she's only tiny and the men would have been embarrassed to admit she got the better of them!

Thanks, pheno.

Indeed, furtheron.

Very true, nitwit.

Indeed, welshcakes, as I said, God was right there in the dirt.

I'm just a spectator, rose!
