“The Choices We Make”; Carla J. Bailey, June 11

We are who are privileged have much to learn from those who are not. Carla recounted the engagement of women prisoners with Matthew 9:9–13. “[T]hey understood the woman, and they knew it was incredible that someone with the stature of Jesus would have allowed himself to be touched by a woman, or that he was so willing to have supper with sinners. They didn’t understand what the big deal was with tax collectors, but they sure absorbed the stunning reversal of power the story represented. They were quick to recognize how they themselves were sinners and they were slow to identify anyone outside of their particular circumstances as sinners. Would that we all would be so nonjudgmental.” Listen now to her sermon.
