Why Prisoners Matter to Me

“What would it be like if you were known for the worst thing you’ve ever done?”

-This quote is so powerful it would make a godly grandmother insecure.

-I can’t imagine the types of labels that prisoners carry with them while they are incarcerated and when they leave the prison. On one hand, it’s good if they accept responsibility for their actions. It’s more likely though that whether they learn from their past, it haunts them for the rest of their lives.

-I’ve often thought the only real difference between many of us and those who have been imprisoned is that we didn’t get caught. Would we be among the majority that end up in a prison system that takes away years and fails to provide more than a grown-up time out?

-I’m excited to follow along on your journey as you wrestle with questions that may sometimes lead to more confusion before finding the answers. God seems to reveals things to people who are willing to look at others the same way He does.
