Don't take yourself too seriously...

This is the moment, where Martin Charlesworth, lead elder of Barnabas Community Church in Shrewsbury, who leads the Borderlands region of newfrontiers in the UK, gets cold baked beans poured over his head by Terry Hotchkiss, one of his eldership team, at the Together@Borderlands event in Wrexham.

This took place at the youth venue, with many teenagers gathered, after his talk just half an hour before in the main venue regarding our hopes to plant many new churches in our region.

From this I have learned three things:

1) Don't take yourself too seriously
2) Always "dress down" for youth events - you may end up covered in something nasty
3) For safety, when working with teenagers, develop a bean allergy and make it public knowledge
