One thing churches could do
Backstory. I wrote the following for Blasting News today and in it I just happened to suggest that justice reform needed an approach of restitution, serious counseling and the placement of prisoners in redemptive communities. I am sure this is being done from place to place. But it occurred to me that this is exactly what could renew and enliven congregations that today are more or less dead or dying.
Anyway I pass on the thought. Our prisons would have no place in a world of cybercommunities where this mentality would be part of a common value system. We are far from that. But it will come in its own time.
