Dan Gushee shared his personal testimony about that very question today at the MidNorth Shepherd Center's monthly luncheon at the cafe.
Dan is the founder of 'Grace Place'... an ex-offender 're-entry' housing ministry.
Here's a video by 'Choices Team' featuring Dan and one of his guys, Buddy, illustrating the value of a faith-based small-group becoming a 'care team' for a prisoner returning to the community.
'Mother Moore' gave devotions today in standard form -- if you've never been at the cafe to hear her, you MUST mark your calendar for the 1st Tues of a month, 10:30am, and come sit in.
