The Gospel Inside
In this episode, we are talking about theological education in prisons. You’ll hear from Jia Johnson, Program Director for McCormick Theological Seminary’s Solidarity Building Initiative for Liberative Carceral Education at Cook County Jail. Jia reflects on her journey into this justice-making ministry, and the pressure points placed on her program as a result of Covid-19. You’ll hear from Dr. Sarah Farmer, who will help us wrestle with the shape of hope and community alongside individuals who are incarcerated; and you will hear from Mel Webb, a leader and emerging scholar whose research and work to create educational opportunities inside of the prison system deepens our collective call to restorative justice.
