How far would you go . . . How much would you risk . . . How hard would you fight . . . To Save a Life?
What's the point of all of this if you don't let it change you?
This movie is one of the few "Jesusy" movies that I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE. All of the youth and parents who have seen it so far love it, and I'm so excited about this lock-in in October. It covers issues like depression, suicide, cutting, teen pregnancy, divorce, pressures of school and getting into college, etc.
Because of what topics this movie addresses, we could have some really intense conversations at the lock-in. So I had the idea to put together a reference sheet of phone numbers and websites for crisis situations. The youth can use it for themselves or for someone that they know. I'll make sure everyone goes home with at least one copy of this sheet. It turned into an all day project! Which is great.
This is where you come in. I'm posting the websites and phone numbers that I've found. 1) so that you also can have these as references 2) in case you have any suggestions about what to put on the sheet or what to take off.
I would love to hear your feedback!
