I interviewed Rome, Georgia’s Joe Gesing today. He is involved with the “One Church – One Inmate Program” at St. Mary’s Church here. The church “team” for this program sends letters to the inmate, visits the inmate in prison, helps them find a place and a job when they get out… as well as a myriad of other things. Our position paper on crime suggests we lean toward much more “restorative justice” with prisoners in America. That is, social justice would dictate that we do everything possible to help the prisoner rehabilitate and get a solid footing in society once he or she gets out. Note: When we are compelled spiritually to “visit those in prison,” is that just about physically visiting them, or are we to “visit” with as many creative approaches as possible to help them really turn their lives around?
