Prison Visitation

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus unequivocally teaches his followers, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” In this fashion, you model God’s own love for both “the just and the unjust” (Matthew 5:44-45). Taking this to heart, we at Jubilee have reached out to people on Georgia’s death row for over forty years. We have organized vigils in Athens on the night of an execution, transported family members to visit their loved one on death row, and visited and corresponded with individual prisoners. These individual relationships, maintained now for decades, have shown us what mass incarceration and capital punishment really mean. These practices aim, above all, to take revenge on broken children of God — a God who loves them and who also loves us, broken as we are.
