It’s a mixed-bag on the Forum this week! We’ll be covering a few different topics on Sunday night and talking to some very interesting people.
-Daniel Walker is a detective who works undercover to prosecute human traffickers and rescue hundreds of women and children. He is the author of the book God in a Brothel.
-Mahe Drysdale is a Kiwi Olympic legend and world rowing champion. This month he is climbing the world’s highest free-standing mountain (Mt Kilimanjaro) to support the work of World Vision.
-Graham Aitchison is a 29 year-old New Zealander who has suffered from depression for as long as he can remember. A publishing company in the States has recently published his book about his struggle, the healing process and where God fits into it.
Bjorn interviewed Daniel Walker, author of God in a Brothel, and it's a real eye-opener. If you wanna hear more, he's speaking at Manakau City Baptist Church on the 14th June at 7pm and the following day at Edge Kingsland... also at 7pm. Lastly, he'll be at Zeal West on Sunday, 16th June at 10am.
On our last Forum we talked about drugs. Some of the callers said they were in favour of decriminalising cannabis because even if they personally thought it wasn’t a good idea to smoke it, others should be free to decide for themselves. We’re going to pick up on that idea on this week’s show.
Can you impose your own morals or values on someone else?
What if you know that something is harmful? This could apply to lots of different issues: abortion, pornography, smoking etc.
Where does the freedom to choose come into it?
Do other people know what YOUR values are and do you think it’s ok to try and make others live by your rules?
Be part of the conversation by calling the Forum on Sunday night from 9pm!

Synthetic cannabis has been in the news this week.
Do you think it should be banned?
Or does having it available mean that people stay away from harder drugs?
How about ‘normal’ cannabis? Should that be decriminalised?
Is this stuff really harmful to your health? Should people have the right to decide whether they use it or not?
Have soft drugs affected YOUR life?
There are many questions about this one...
