James Blackstock of the St. Seraphim Prison Ministry in Florida talks about his experience working with inmates in a maximum security prison. Questions include: * Tell us about your experience witnessing the Chrismation of a man who had been on death row for 17 years. * What is your opinion on the death penalty? * Can you describe what the prisons you visit are like? * Do the men you minister to intimidate or scare you at all? What do they think of you when you first meet? * How have your years of working with convicted criminals impacted your personal relationship with Christ? * What do you think about the fact that the US has the highest incarceration rate in the world?
