Rev. Marilyn Kendrix BCCUCC Barrington Congregational ChurchAlthough the general population is largely unaware of it, the US prison population has skyrocketed over recent decades. Prison populations have increased by 700% in the past half-century. That, along with the privatization of prisons have turned incarceration into big business. Additionally, incarceration rates for black males is more than three times the percentage of black males in society. What does all this mean for America today? What does our faith as Christians call us to do when we come across such staggering statistics?
Rev. Marilyn Kendrix, former Transitional Conference Minister for the RI Conference, UCC, will be joining us for worship on Sunday, January 12th and sharing her work raising Christian awareness of this growing issue in our country. Please come join her and the rest of us.
