'Can I Go Home Again?'

"Can I go home again?"... the compelling question of 18,000 prisoners released each year from Indiana Department of Corrections.

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.
