I saw that title over at Tony Jones’ blog last Friday. It intrigued me enough that I took the time to watch the video. And, you know what? It might just be true. Bryan Stevenson’s talk about identity and justice, specifically in reference to restorative justice in our prison system, and generally about social injustice in all areas of society, is well worth the time it takes to watch and is truly a great talk (I don’t know if it’s the best, but it is very good). Once again, this talk seems to hit on issues that the church should be taking notice of and addressing. How can the church help with perception of identity? How can the church be a voice for restorative justice? How can the church answer the call of Jesus when it comes to those in prison?
What do you think about Bryan Stevenson’s talk?
