Love at work in prison
There we were, in a glass-enclosed room with our seven young male students, all violent offenders in a youth correctional facility. My husband and I had been teaching these young men about Christian Science and about God’s love for them, and now it was time for them to apply what they had learned.
I watched them shift uneasily in their seats. They had just found out that the two young men who had stabbed some of their fellow prisoners with pens the night before would be allowed to return to the prison ward that night. Since all the men on the ward slept in one big room, not in separate cells, they felt vulnerable after lights-out. They feared a repeat of the violence and told us, “We don’t know what we’re going to do.”
