BTW, my last post was cut off! But I worked with a team of brothers from Akron/Canton area to take the Kairos program to another of Ohio's prisons near St.Clairsville...but many of them drove down thru our farm for training on a Sat. six weekends..then we went inside Belmont Correctional!! To see the sacrificial love those men had was an inspiration; there were six of us Vietnam-era Vets on the team! All at our own expense; no tax $...and recidivism is greatly improved..$aving tax $'s, too! The team leader teaches part-time at Mt. Union U. retired from Lockheed! Laity-led w/ clergy oversight! http://www.kairosohio.org/KairosSnapshot.html
I was told by a friend who aspired to be a lawyer..who'd just completed a Kairos weekend in Lebanon Co. that 70% of inmates who utilize what the link above strives for...'work the program'...when released NEVER RETURN to Prison! Results speak very loudly! Amen!!
