Called

The fifth Sunday after Epiphany continues to highlight unlikely instruments and circumstances appointed to reveal the glory of the Lord. “Who will go for us?” queries the voice of the Lord. A man of unclean lips, a former persecutor of the church of God, and three fishermen who couldn’t catch a thing. More surprising still, perhaps, is the fact that we are also called.

This is a FREE presentation by MOSES organizer Frank Davis with a question and answer session, small group discussions and a solitary cell replica. A light lunch is included.
Did you know?
Fact 1: RACIAL INEQUITY - though they make up only 7% of the population, African Americans comprise 46% of the incarcerated population
Fact 2: CRIMELESS REVOCATION - approximately 3,000 people annually are sent to prison for violating a rule of their supervision and no new law is broken.
Fact 3: IMPACT ON FAMILIES - It has been well documented that children whose parents are incarcerated are more likely to become incarcerated themselves. Furthermore, if this trend continues, 1 in 3 black children born today will experience incarceration.
This event is organized by St. Paul A.M.E. and Unity Churches. For more info contact Saundra Brown @ 608-332-8349
