Text from the first three paragraphs of "Ranson the Captive/Visit the Imprisoned""I was in prison, and you visited me." Matthew 25:36Prison can seem like a remote place not connected with our real lives until we learn about someone's son, daughter or other family member who is behind bars. No matter where we live or how much we earn, we probably know someone with a family member in prison. That's when it becomes more real.If we have a family member who is incarcerated, visit as often as possible. The person convicted of a crime still needs support and love from home, and receiving mail or visits when possible, are a key to that support. We might support a prison ministry in our area with donations of our time, money and/or needed supplies. I could offer a gift subscription to a prison library or organize a book drive for it. Offer support to retreat programs held in prisons.
