“The Realities of Incarceration”

June 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Presented by Jail Chaplain, Christa Fisher

THIS Sunday, June 24 Time: 4:00 – 6:00 pm
4:00 – 6:00 pm
New Life Church
7564 Cottage Grove Road – Madison
*Free will offering

This is the first of a two part series. The July gathering will include a panel  discussion. These events are well attended and a great opportunity to be engaged with members of other congregations in our synod!

Join Rev. Christa Fisher for a close look inside our state Incarceration system. Her presentation will explore the Trinity of Oppression (Capitalism, Patriarchy, and Racism) as lived out in the Dane County Jail, home to 16,000 people each year – nearly all of whom are poor, and a majority of which are racial minorities. Through personal insights from her 5-years providing spiritual care inside the Dane County Jail, Rev. Fisher will offer illuminating and insightful stories that force us to reexamine this system of “Justice” through the lens of the Cross.
