Are You Ever Truly Released From Prison?
Publication: Are You Ever Truly Released From Prison?
by Rev. David Nagler, Pastor,CEO, CCLM
“…This is what the gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to do for those released from prison. We are to see them as human beings created in God’s very image and then, by acts of love, restore them to our community. We are to speak out against policies and practices that dehumanize the formerly incarcerated and thereby increase the likelihood of their reoffending. We are to name and exorcize the demon of fear that creates a rationale for draconian laws that promote retribution instead of rehabilitation.”
