Deep thoughts? I don't have any. My brain is too tired from teaching a class on Prison Ministry with a prison chaplain at Princeton Seminary.
What do I know about prison? Not much, honestly. But here is what I was arguing: Christian presence in prison is a sacrament. Like Baptism or the Lord's Supper, it is a means of grace to show us divine freedom.
Who did I learn this from? Martin Luther King, Jr. We're celebrating MLK weekend with a Lock-In. Consider it training for more serious work down the road.
See you Sunday!
