New Life Episcopal Church

Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!


I’ve been writing and visiting prisoners, men under sentence of death, for twenty years now. It does seem a strange thing to do. I started by visiting one man. Next thing I knew, there were five. I seldom encourage others to visit prisoners. Every call to a ministry is a singular gift to the one who is called. It takes time and prayer to understand where one’s strengths might be. It requires courage and trust in God to answer a call that may seem wholly unsuitable … yet we go … “We have been blessed so that we can be a blessing.”*

*Paraphrase, Gen12:2
