Bob Harrison: Faith restored

February 4, 2014 

Life can be depressing after each day’s dosage of news, but then I read the Feb. 4 letter “Too-common view” from a man who invites soon-to-be-released prison inmates to his home to better prepare them for a successful transition back to free society. What a difficult undertaking. There are a host of reasons to do this, but perhaps the one that most have to agree with: These prisoners are coming out. Let’s give them good reason to stay out.

One letter helped restore my faith in mankind. Christ is surely proud of this man.
