Subject: The sin bin

Back in 1999, I attended a meeting where the ja had a sin bin, a place where you threw things from your past that you wanted to cast away, a kind of throwing away your last to give your life to noel and the ja.

Strangely today I finally threw away the last of my ja stuff, there was a nail on a piece of string that was given away to many people, as a symbol of the nail that kept Christ on the cross, I guess in a spiritual way, that nail kept us nailed to the ja.

I also threw awayy wooden red cross, I used to wear it all the time when visiting the ja, I think at the time it cost 2.99, the plastic ones were free, or you could buy more for a quid, strange it's taken nearly eleven years to dispose of this ridiculous item, I view it now as a kind of false talisman, at the time I thought wearing it was extremely serious.

I had also back then, a tee shirt, a kind of multicoloured affair, I wore that when painting a house, and then threw it away, i also had a Jesus people jumper, in a kind of wool, not quite fleece, again, at the time it was quite expensive, i still had it four years ago, I finally used it when spraying chemicals, and threw it away after, amazing what you keep, and what I paid for that stuff, I suppose the ja always was good at making money.

Throwing the cross and nail away was kind of like the ja sin bin, and was a big thing for a moment there, anyone else trying to move on, I suggest
you do the same, and throw your old cross, clothing and anything else away, as a kind of sin bin.

These days I still wear my cross, not an expensive item, but one that I never take off, whatever I am doing.

These crosses can be purchased for as little as 2, so if there is the need to wear one, you can, without still being tied
spiritually or mentally to the ja.
