Carol Wickersham discusses Jail Ministry
A good crowd of 22 OWLS enjoyed another potluck and fellowship. April flowers decorated the tables this fine spring day. Carol Wickersham presented a very interesting program on jail ministry at the Rock County jail. Carol is a teacher at Beloit College and a minister. Carol took us on a trip through the Rock County jail. She was very descriptive. A jail is a short term while a prison is long term. Those in jail do not have very good facilities. Carol meets with a group of ladies on a regular basis and gives communion on a volunteer basis. Rock County has about 400 inmates of which 50 are women. Roger read a few jokes, such as a Mark Twain quote, “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog”. The group donated $50 to the Barnyard Animals hosted by the Sunday school. Next Month: The next meeting will be May 23. The program will be Teena Monk-Gerber speaking on the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance.
The Group Listens Intently
