Prisoners are People
Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology
The pastoral problem which I have identified in the previous section can and should be approached in many different ways. As with any deeply held prejudice, the repersonalization of prisoners as people is not something which will be solved overnight or with a few well intentioned words being placed upon the pages of this paper. My goal is not to solve the problem. This is a task that goes far beyond the abilities of one person. Rather, my goal is to act as a bridge between those of us who are in prison and those of us who minister in the local churches.
