Peacemakers and Prisons

I just saw a very cool sidebar in an article in The Baptist Standard (a publication of the Baptist General Convention of Texas).  In it, they talk about a prison ministry where John Morrison has been taking peacemaking directly to the prisoners. Check out this photo:

The caption under this photo reads:
The Gib Lewis Unit Peacemaking Team–the Brothers in White–completed the Peacemaker Ministries small-group study to instill in them peacemaking principles to help stop violence in the prison yard. Brothers in White include (seated, left to right) Jess, Eric and Jason; (standing, left to right) Floyd, “Alabama,” Charles and Francisco. Not pictured are Thomas and Olguin.

We love hearing how God is using the Small Group Study and other peacemaking materials in the lives of people everywhere!

I've been on staff with Peacemaker Ministries since 2000, working with IT, web, communications, and marketing. I currently serve as Director of Marketing and Communications (though my background is in engineering... go figure!). I'm a lay leader at my church, I'm married to Tara (who you might know as co-author of the book Peacemaking Women), and I'm the father of two little girls. My life is rich with opportunities to observe conflict and reconciliation!
