HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Nov. 18, 2016-I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU VISITED ME
Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster
“The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons.”
How often do we enter our society’s prisons? Can we judge the degree of our own civilization without knowing what it’s like inside them?
From our friends at No Exception Prison Collective:
‘In the summer of 2014, men incarcerated in the Tennessee Department of Corrections began a blog. Their posts are as prophetic as they are well-crafted. They are the outcasts that wish to return. They are the prodigal sons. Visit the blog: http://www.prodigalsons1.blogspot.com”
Today’s Action: Check out the list of recommended books, videos and films from No Exceptions Prison Collective.
