Kimberly French preaching
The Least of These My Brothers
What does our theology teach us about how we treat people who have committed crimes that seem unforgiveable? Just a few miles from our church and homes is the Bridgewater Correctional Complex, a collection of medium-security institutions that incarcerate hundreds of inmates and mental-health patients. Kimberly French will share her own spiritual journey as a lay-ministry visitor to an inmate there. The Chalice Choir will be singing.
