I Was in Prison and You Visited Me

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?

Please join us in celebrating this tremendous success by giving to the “10 Cent A Day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Help us continue our mission of comforting, inspiring and informing the next generation of Orthodox Christians, persecuted Christians and faith-seekers around the world.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, I thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.
