Enemy at the Gates

Although Ed Harris is one of the actors that I seem to enjoy in everything he does, this is not about the 2001 war film in which he starred. Last year at this time, I wrote an article entitled “Not Gideon’s 300” referencing the resiliency of our NE Lady Saints. They had exactly three women on the roster before the season began, yet managed to pull together a successful season and engage in recruiting new members at the same time.

New year, new challenge. In 2018, they had a full roster of very committed women, including the return of a seasoned veteran, so the enemy chose a different tact to try to discourage them…cancellations!

They typically visit women’s prisons in the tristate area once a month and the schedule this year reflected exactly that. Yet they have only been able to conduct two events since August due to multiple excuses from prisons – including one prison where we arrived at security with a copy of the prison’s own gate memo in hand and were still denied entry!

Please add our Lady Saints to your personal prayer lists throughout 2019 – when the season rolls around this fall, we are coming back with a vengeance and Satan is going to have to find a new way to try and stop us!

Covid-19 takes a backseat

As a ministry called to introduce inmates to Jesus Christ,  the current culture dictates that we are ministering to a predominantly minority population.   It is important that we recognize this, even as we acknowledge that the Good News of Jesus Christ’s atoning work is free to all.

Even as protests appear to be waning in some areas, it is escalating in others.  The issue of racism in America is as relevant and important today as it was the day George Floyd was heinously murdered on the streets of Minneapolis.

It has become expedient that I address the racial climate of today, and express what we believe as regards to racism in America  and our response as believers.  To that end, I invite you to click on the link below:
