Pray for Kairos Weekend 13!
March 23, 2015
DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS,
We are coming to another opportunity for our church family to minister to those in prison. Kairos 13 at Warren Correctional Institute will be served on April 30 - May 3, and we would like to ask you to join Andrew Herbst and me in serving. Not by going inside on the team, but by your prayers. If you are willing, please sign up to pray for our team and the residents for one hour (or several if you wish). A Prayer Vigil Sign Up is on the table in the hall, and you can add your name to the time slot you choose. Or, if you are more tech comfortable, go to:
and click the time slot of your choice, then fill in the blanks. Either method works.
Thank You Cards from Prisoners
The men whom God brought to recent Kairos Weekends at Warren Correctional Institute want to thank all those who prayed, baked, cooked, and served during those weekends. They put their thanks on the attached greetings. The art work was done by the men, themselves. Just click on the photos for the full-size versions.
Icons of Christ in Prison
About the 'Christ in Prison' icon:
It came to pass because some of us who were going to the prison each week commented that it was true that we meet Christ when we visit His brethren. I had been talking to Fr. Ted in Dayton about his prison ministry, and he told me that one of his guys wrote icons. I got in contact with the inmate, and he did this icon for us. It is a very traditional image, except that Christ is wearing an Ohio prison uniform. The icon was a blessing to several of us at the OCPM gathering in Denver, and the original went home with a man whose son is in prison.
