This is a long read but interesting on many different fronts…global warming, freedom of speech and the US judicial system.
I have just read in a book (I think it was “Healing for a Broken World”) that in light of Jesus’s reading of Isaiah in Luke Chapter 4:18 that it is time to look at prison reform and sentencing in America. The article cited below says:
The United States has six to twelve times the number of incarcerated people per capita as Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom, the nearest comparable countries.
Jesus says in Luke:
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free…
Perhaps another cause to look at…the awful conditions in prisons and the fact that the US may be sending too many people to prison. Anyway…read the article.
I gotta go…
