Doing time

Into prison today. It's become a regular Tuesday thing, going in and working with a small group of men, preparing stuff for the Christmas Carol service. We have a great time: we chat, read, edit, laugh. Now one of 'my boys' has got parole and is to be released the weekend after the carol service. Which is fine except he said today that he might get ROTFL (I don't think that was the actual acronym but something like it), which is having the odd day or night out before release to practise for it. I said he couldn't go if it clashed with the service. He said, 'Tough!'

So then one of the lads went and dragged someone else in to be a stand-in and it turned out that this man is a great mimic and is happy to put on a woman's voice. As a result, the innkeeper's monologue is beginning to sound Pythonesque. (He's not the messiah; he's a very naughty boy.) Don't tell the chaplain that yet though. He's left us to it so we've got a free hand ...

Sounds like it could be fun!!

My friend who is a Christian goes to a Prison on a Tuesdays to help the inmates..but she and others are there to help them get forgiveness and to quide them to another way of thinking and living!

It is, anne.

I hope that by being there I am demonstrating Jesus's love. Although it's probably less obvious!
