Please distribute the material provided, do not distribute any other materialduring the vigil without first asking a member of the organising committee.7. If a passer-by is rude or aggressive you must not return any similar behavior
instead you can tell them you love them. This is crucial as we are there tobring love, compassion and hope to a place that desperately needs it. Theirrudeness and anger shows us how much they need our love and prayers. Atthe same time, we do not need to tolerate physical abuse or repeatedthreatening behaviour and verbal abuse. If this occurs, write down the date,time, who was present, what was said and inform the police on the crimereporting line 0207 230 1212. If you behave implacably, if the police getunfairly called against you, you will have nothing to fear. This has nothappened to the prayer vigil participants but the counselors are moreexposed.8.

Please replenish the suppliesof flyers and magazines in the boxes once there. Please remember that if youwant to continue praying at the clinic alone, you will need to get the bannerand boxes back to St Giles for the night then come back alone.
