The Good News continues:
Our Prison Fellowship Committee’s fundraiser dinner on Friday night raised $1,200!
But here’s what I want to tell you:
Three African-American women, whose lives have been impacted by the mass incarceration of African-American men in ways I will never experience, came to the dinner. And contributed store-bought cookies and a jar of freeze-dried nuts.
And just as I can never know how it feels watching so many men from your community—including members of your own family, perhaps—sent to jail, I cannot adequately express how deeply touched I was and continue to be about their contribution.
