Reverend Judith Talbert, pastor of participating Faith Tabernacle, was quoted thusly: "We must have the inclusion of the church family and the community as well as government to bring permanent behavioral change." Christian churches, following the suggestion of the Gospel to visit those incarcerated, have offered direct spiritual counsel to prisoners. Religious institutions have had to confront the limits of their ministries behind bars. Spirituality may help people survive the hardships of incarceration, but life on the outside poses a different challenge. Today on Reentry Radio we will talk with Melvina Dilosa she is founder of the BAL Building A Life program a faith-based curriculum designed by Melvina to help formerly incarcerated men and women re-settle in society.
