Police called, riot van outside, a normal bible study at Zac's then?

The best way to describe last Tuesday's bible study at Zac's is to quote Sean's Facebook status:
The evening could only really pan out one way, when the first aid box is open before we start and there's a riot van out front ... Ah well, at least disorientation and confusion were all part of the story.

Damien, paralytic and barely conscious, offered to read some verses for the bible study. Through the incoherence of his mumblings some words stood out. They weren't in the section he was 'reading' but I guess he thought they should be. The words were Jesus, need and cry.

In the same way the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. Romans 8:26
