Salt flavors. It stabilizes and preserves. Light vanquishes darkness and brings warmth. Our Christian faith calls us to be salt and light here and now. But what does the willingness to be God’s instrument of love, peace, and forgiveness look like inside the walls of a prison? And how can each of us become messengers of Christ’s light both inside and beyond the barriers of those walls?

Join us for the West Michigan Restorative Justice Conference to learn about ways – personal and communal – to contribute to creating a restorative culture in our broken society.

Be inspired for “Radical Mission” on April 22 at Cathedral Square Center. Conceived and organized by the men incarcerated at Richard A. Handlon Correctional Facility in Ionia, and hosted by Prison & Jail Ministry – Diocese of Grand Rapids and the Calvin Prison Initiative, the conference will feature keynote presenter James Wahlberg, filmmaker and author of “The Big Hustle: A Boston Street Kid’s Story of Addiction and Redemption.”
