Our Presence and Purpose is Powerful!
1 John 4:7
When we love one another, we remember we are not fighting for just ourselves, but we are fighting for humanity that the Word calls for in 1 John 4:7.
Did you know that, according to one Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, which surveyed adults across the U.S. in late June of 2020, 31% of respondents reported some form of mental health care symptoms and are in need of proper mental health treatment?
And with the largest mental health institution in the United States being our prison system, the sobering number of unmet mental health needs is heartbreaking.
The beloveds that Blameless and Forever Free Ministries pours into may be imprisoned and/or recently released from state prison, but the connective tissue of true rehabilitation is in the transforming of one’s mind requiring relational community.
Every individual who has been incarcerated has a great need for appropriate mental health care treatment both during their incarceration and once released back into community.
Let’s face it, if you’ve committed a crime, there’s trauma behind it.Tweet
And to love one another, forgiveness is necessary (not negating the crime) along with meeting them right where they are at developmentally.
Building healthy individuals and families should be our number one priority so we have a fighting chance at safer communities and developing healthy generations.
Future generations, meaning YOUR children and your children’s children, are being formed this very moment and what those little eyes see and hear now matters.
Until next time…
