There is a popular saying (and I do not know which country it originated from), that says, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never harm me!” Well, I’m sorry my friend I beg to differ – names do harm us, they destroy our confidence, our self-worth, our personality, our character, our wisdom, our integrity. Don’t listen to the world’s value system; establish your worth according to how God values you. God demonstrated your importance to Him in two special ways. First, He created you in His own image, which basically means you are clever, intelligent, and have great creative abilities. Secondly, had you been the only man, the only woman, the only child (boy or girl), that ever lived on this earth; God still would have sent Jesus Christ, His Son to save us. That makes you child of God someone special – a diamond – priceless! These two things should tell us all that we are not nobodies but some bodies – we are ‘BE-ABOUTS’ in God’s kingdom!

WHY CHURCHES IN THE UK SHOULD BE INTERESTED IN THE SAILORS’ SOCIETY?

3 Oct

Improving any society’s workforce is very important, and knowing the steps to take and the benefits derived are keys to its progress, and we at the ‘Sailors’ Society’, are keen to promote our anchor organisation to every Christian Church in the United Kingdom, and to its value contribution in giving and seeing that seafarers, ship-owners, oil-rig workers, construction ship builders and workers, offshore or onshore individual person or persons gets spiritual, physical, mental, emotional and financial help in their time of need, whatever circumstance may occur.

All maritime trade is the life-blood of the United Kingdom’s economy and industry, for 90% of Britain’s economic activity depends on the oceans of this world. And every year Great Britain imports goods worth 524 billion pounds sterling. The United Kingdom is so dependent on the seas for its growing prosperity, that without organisations such as the ‘Sailors’ Society’ acting as spiritual and physical anchor deterrents the effects on the British economy of this tiny little island, we would personally believe be overwhelming. As the many waters cover the many vast seas and oceans of this world, the ‘Sailors’ Society’ through Chaplain intercessory prayers, drive and passion, and wise counselling are spiritually security committed to patrolling our maritime shores, offering reassurance and wider regional engagement to every seafarer or worker on and off the high seas. Our maritime Christian society’s wider capabilities provide humanitarian assistance; spiritual comfort and counselling as when required just like rescuing seafarers from Tsunami’s.

With the daily increase of more ship vessels being unfortunately used for human or illegal arms, the smuggling of drugs or trafficking immigrants, and the more recent threat of acts of terrorism the Christian ‘Sailors’ Society’ fleet of safe-guarding Chaplain workers, agencies and departments are never more needed right now. With 90% of all world trade that is transported by sea, Great Britain is an island nation that is dependent on its sea trade. Just like our Royal Navy is committed and dedicated to protecting maritime commerce, the ‘Sailor’s Society’ is also fully committed and dedicated to letting the United Kingdom and working in partnership and maintaining its capability with the Body of Christ worldwide know, that we are also committed through prayer and intercession in protecting the 17.3 billion + tonnes of goods, and the 600,000+ jobs directly dependent upon maritime necessitates, that the ‘Sailors’ Society’ is a formidable presence on the global stage.

logoWe at the ‘Sailors’ Society’ have a Christian responsibility to all its seafaring citizens, members, and partners in endeavoring to safeguard all that need our organisations’ humanitarian help, whether it’s spiritual, physical, mental, emotional or financial. As Coastguards and ship vessels carry for their passengers Lifebuoys’ to throw to a drowning person or a crew member falling overboard, these Lifebuoys’ have saved many lives every year. God also has human Lifebuoys’ like the ‘Sailors’ Society’ by means of which perishing sinners are rescued, and all those who have known His saving grace and power have received God’s precious life-line. The ‘Sailors’ Society’ is the Gospel Lifebuoy for all shipwrecked people, for God will’s is for all to be saved, and that no person on planet earth should perish, for He has provided salvation for all. You may be shipwrecked by sin, and sinking under the power of its dark murky waters; and this is the condition of all who are “without Christ and unsaved”. For a ship and a seafarer at sea in a perilous storm knows the value of a good secure anchor. A false or failing anchor means shipwreck and disaster.

logoWe here at the ‘Sailor’s Society’ want to be that steadfast anchor in the stormy seas of seafarer’s lives’. Just as many great ocean liners crossed the seas, week after week, carrying thousands of emigrants from their homes to distant lands, some for the better, and others for the worse we want to help people who daily use or need our organisations’ services to reach their shoreline of safety and protection. As life is compared to a great voyage, a passing or crossing over the sea, from one country to another; God’s Ship of Salvation is the Only One to trust for it is registered in heaven. No other guarantee’s a safe voyage across life’s sea, for God Himself is the Captain of our Salvation, and all the passengers are fully insured against loss on the voyage of eternal life. The chart of which we the ‘Sailors’ Society’ sails’ is God’s Holy Bible in which every port is clearly marked, so there is no danger of running aground on any hidden rock. A safe compass is also a needful part of the seafarers’ outfit, and the Holy Spirit of God is our only safe compass. Everything else is uncertain, and leaves doubt about safety but we at the ‘Sailors’ Society’ are using God’s voice to make sure, that every United Kingdom Church, and every seafarer or seafaring organisation, or onshore or offshore worker regardless of ethnicity, age, gender or age group, or disability has the opportunity to book themselves on God’s good ship of eternal grace, mercy, and love. No other ship has God’s guarantee of Glory, AMEN!!!

Former football hooligan testimony – Inspire September 2011 – Renton Baker

A former football hooligan explains his amazing change of heart.  By Sandie Shirley

Renton Baker led a double life. A loving, protective father and husband, he also terrorised opposing soccer fans on the terraces. That was until he faced a dramatic challenge at a church funeral: unless his heart was softened, he was on a collision course with hell. From then on there was a new quest to find real peace. Within days Renton bared his soul to a church minister. “I talked to him for four hours about everything I had ever done; as I spoke I felt clean.” That first encounter with God began a life-changing experience that has taken him across the globe to share his faith. “I learnt that my acts of violence were cowardly and love was the way forward – and the real tough guys were those who stood up for their belief and love for Jesus Christ,” says Renton.

His life spiralled out of control when his father, an ex-boxer and soldier, died when he was just 14. It made him bitter and angry. “Once I beat up a cousin when he told me he had a great day fishing with his dad.” Despite the violence as a football hooligan, using baseball bats, knuckle-dusters and ammonia to temporarily blind his victims, he would be concerned for his mother’s welfare as a widow. At 20 Renton was married, and within four years he was the father of three sons. His violence outside the home escalated, causing mental and physical harm to many of his victims.

It reached a crisis point when he planned to kill a man for landing his son in hospital. “It was frightening looking back,” he says. “I felt calm and in control as I planned to ambush him with the help of a friend.” He was saved from murder when his friend led his intended victim to a way of escape. It began a new way of thinking for Renton: “For the first time, something was telling me that I did not want to be angry any more.”

The turning point came at the funeral of his wife’s grandfather, a former church minister. His wife, Wendy, had turned back to God six months previously and was praying for Renton’s heart to change. “I walked into the church feeling naked and exposed as everyone knew about the things I had done.n“Listening to the minister’s words, I heard about this tough man for Jesus who had known God for 72 years. There was a personal challenge when the minister continued: ‘If you cannot be affected by this man’s life you must be so cold and hard-hearted, that you might as well walk into hell now.’”

Renton began a life-changing path, but a year later his youngest son asked him to help retrieve £2,000 inheritance money that he had lent to a cocaine addict.  For a brief moment Renton’s rage spilled. The police were already at the scene when he was armed with a knife to fight for his son’s rights. Renton was charged with the attempted murder of a policeman and his intended victim. “The charges were built up on some very dangerous and false statements and they were eventually dropped to lesser charges at the beginning of my crown court trial,” recalls Renton.

Disappointment at his failure became a divine re-appointment. Sitting in a prison cell immediately after the event, he promised God he would never do anything like it again. During the court case the judge ordered a two-year suspended prison sentence rather than send him to jail. “God intervened. I witnessed the power of answered prayer. I should never have had bail, let alone be given my freedom. “God is good all the time – full of grace and mercy. Nothing we can do will stop God loving us,” says Renton whose friend committed his life to God three days after the astonishing court ruling.

Today, Renton is a man with a huge heart for God. Building site colleagues refer to him as “the bishop” as he unashamedly shares his faith story. He also takes the platform for his Saviour at prisons, school and men’s meetings across the UK and travels all over the world as an evangelist for Avanti Ministries and Tough Talk.

“This may be my story but it is Jesus’ testimony of grace.”

‘BOLTS CREW’ of Luton Town F.C

30 Apr

Bolts Crew Badge blackBolts Crew Badge white

The ‘‘BOLTS CREW’’ of the 1970’s and 1980’s were Luton Town’s first active football hooligan firm of all ethnic backgrounds and age groups.

‘‘BOLTS CREW’’, aka – ‘Boys Of Luton Town’.

Before the name of the BOLTS CREW came into existence, there were many of the older skinhead boys who followed Luton Town F.C who wanted to be called; The “DJB” – the ‘Donkey Jacket Brigade’. This was because one Luton Town home game in the 1970’s, the majority of Luton hooligan skinhead boys that where housed in the whole of the Oak Road End of Kenilworth Road, started to wear Donkey Jackets and Doc Marten laced-up boots.

Many of the original BOLTS CREW from as early as the 1970’s and 1980’s received banning orders or prison sentences, and a new hooligan firm of smart dressed men in casual designer wear was formed called the: “MIGs” – Men in Gear.

The BOLTS CREW and the MIGs had fierce rivalries with firms that still continued into the 21st Century. Listed here are some of the main football clubs and their firms that were involved in serious fighting with Luton’s BOLTS CREW & MIGs hooligan firms at away games and home games since the 1970’s. They were from Watford; QPR; Millwall; Stoke City; Nottingham Forest; Leicester City; Birmingham City; Leeds; Cardiff; Portsmouth; Wolves; W.B.A; Wrexham, Norwich; Ipswich; Chelsea; Crystal Palace; Tottenham; Arsenal; West Ham; Aston Villa; Everton; Manchester United & Manchester City; Norwich; Coventry; Cambridge, Oxford, Mansfield, Swansea, Charlton, Reading, Plymouth, Exeter, Bristol Rovers & Bristol City, Barnsley, Shrewsbury, Lincoln City, Hull City, Bradford, Bury, Bolton, Newcastle & Sunderland, Carlisle, and many other clubs in England.

The events on the 13th of March 1985, when Millwall visited Kenilworth Road in the evening to play Luton Town in an F.A. Cup quarter-final match, whilst not instigated by the BOLTS CREW or the MIGs did have an effect on future matches between the clubs. The hooligan elements among Millwall’s fans, ‘THE BUSHWACKERS’ and ‘THE TREATMENT’ started to riot, and invaded the pitch to get to where most of the BOLTS CREW & MIGs members were housed on that night. ‘Ginger Bob’ and the Millwall firms and their hooligans had infiltrated the famous ‘Maple Road End’, and a massive fight broke out before the game kicked off. The game was halted after 14 minutes into the game, and the referee took both teams off the field of play for 25 minutes, as fans poured on to the pitch and fighting kicked off all over the ground. After the referee blew his final whistle to end the game, the pitch was invaded again with over 700 seats ripped out of the stands and thrown at the police, and the surrounding streets saw and witnessed much more sporadic violence. The violence that ensued that night resulted on a ban for all away fans by Luton Town F.C, which also in turn led to Luton Town F.C getting an expulsion from the League Cup. The ban was finally lifted by the club in 1990/91 season.

A few years later Luton Town F.C celebrated a famous 3-2 League Cup victory over (what many people and pundits said was the best Arsenal team ever assembled), at the old Wembley in the Littlewoods Cup on the 24th April 1988.

In March 2000, on the anniversary of the Luton riots, a group calling themselves ‘‘MIGs 2000’’ were blamed for revenge attacks on Millwall fans when the two teams met at Kenilworth Road. Bedfordshire Police said they were aware; weeks before the match that plans made by the ‘MIGs 2000’ hooligan Firm, to attack Millwall fans in retribution for the events of 1985. Some members of the MIGs 2000 were said (and were) members of the original 1970’s and 1980’s BOLTS CREW members – the very first active Luton Town hooligan firm. Newspapers and other forms of media coverage reported that the MIGs 2000 hooligan firm were said to want revenge with the attitude of, “Millwall, they’ve trashed our town once and they’re not going to do it again!”

This is what one football hooligan called ‘Wurzel’ wrote on one of Chelsea’s football forums about the top best hooligan firms in the country: “One of the most underrated firms of the 70’s and 80’s were the ‘BOLTS CREW’, and later the ‘MIGs’ of Luton Town F.C – on their day they were certainly up there with the best of them. They may not have had the numbers of the big city firms but they had some tough and loyal guys from all ethnic backgrounds who would show up and fight. One of the original Bolts Crew members I can remember getting a nasty hooligan reputation was an ex-para called ‘Badger’ , who is I believe is now a born-again Christian, and a Minister of the Gospel’’.
