The student movement asked me yesterday whether I would lend them a hand. It has been my policy through many years of ministry, not to represent people or to champion their cause (which may be a bad idea), but to enter situations with them. The students have some daunting situations, so it seemed natural to me that I would say yes to this request. I said I would be there with them if they needed me, and if I felt that this would (continue to) help them. OBSERVATION: In other ways, I could be well placed to do this. I have experience with intimidation, and I have received training in non-violent solutions to tough problems.
