Message from Kairos

A text message came from Kathy while we were working. She has been away working "base camp" (outside the prison) during the Kairos Prison Ministry weekend at the womens' prison west of Gig Harbor, WA, an hour or so from here. Looking up Kairos, I learned this program started 31 years ago, and describes itself in brief:
Well-organized and well-trained volunteer teams of men and women from the communities surrounding an institution present an introductory 3-day weekend, described as a short course in Christianity. This inter-denominational team of volunteers — both clergy and laypersons — works in cooperation with the Chaplain who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend. A well-organized follow up program is part of this ministry.
Its roots are in the Cursillo Movement (an offshoot is the Walk to Emmaus).

In any event, in part her note said, "Baking up a storm this morning... Reports from inside indicate message is getting through. Praise the Lord!" Can't wait to hear the full report.
