God's Grace in Action

Each week members of our active Legion of Mary meet with prisoner's at the Tecumseh Sate Correctional Institution. They meet with approx. 20 prisoner's each week. During the 2 hour session they share a meal and talk about Jesus. the program they follow is called "Alpha."

One particular prisoner who participates weekly with our Legion of Mary members was given a class assignment through a local college to write a poem. He chose to write about his "Alpha Experience".

They came from different geographic locations and genealogy, yet from the same tree. They once roamed the hills like wild stallions, with hooves thundering on the ground, the wind whipping through the mane and upon the face, whispering in the ear "Free." Heads were  held high - like the pride of life, they slowed to a trot in place, snorting out of the nose and mouth as if to mock the wind.

Those days have come and gone. Corralled by transgression and broken by the saddle of regret, they now move about to the sound of a buzzing door, buzzing and buzzing forever more. Shuffling their black boots across the putrid tile floor, they usher into a classroom with the ambiance of a elementary school, the small tables pushed together, making larger ones. Faded plastic chairs form the circumference. The men who sat therein were washed by the sands of time, with wrinkled su-spotted skin, thinning hair, and tired eyes - hands calloused and scarred from clinging to life.  They were clothed in labels: Drug dealers, thieves, murders, liars, criminals and felons.

However, today brought a new outlook. Unknown faces, smiling eyes, and a glorious aroma permeated the room. A humble voice emerged from a group of volunteers, asking the men to stand for a moment in prayer. Silence fell over the room. Uncertain of what to do, some bowed their heads, while others peeked with wandering eyes. The man was succinct in supplication, giving thanks and blessing the food. Amen.

The men assembled in line to eat a home cooked meal from a home they had never been, prepared by hands they had not known. The pulled pork was smoked to perfection, so impeccably seasoned that barbeque sauce was almost a moot point. The baked beans had a hint of brown sugar, with chunks of bacon and diced onions. Simply marvelous! The bread was manna from heaven, complimented by good old Nebraska creamed corn.

The men made their way to the tables. In that moment, in a twinkling of their eye, plastic chairs became thrones, and criminals became kings. The environment was transformed to that of a joyful home. Music, laughter, and hope filled the air. This moment, for some, will be the last home meal they will taste or see in this life.

The meal ends with the sharing of a story, written before time, passing through generations on scriptures. It entails sacrifice, forgiveness, and love. This process would be duplicated, week in and week out, each meal more filling that the last, fellowship and relationships being built all the more. These were more than meals, reaching beyond want, meeting needs, and providing starving souls with sustenance for eternity. Lives that were worlds apart had been carefully woven together in the tapestry of time some 2000 years ago just outside of Jerusalem on a hill called Calvary. There, a messiah king hung on a tree, delivering grace to you and me. 

We were blessed to have seen these words walk off the pages and come to life before our eyes. In the midst of this place, strangers became family, creating an oasis in the desert, filling our emptiness with love. The Holy Spirit blew upon our face, whispering in our ears "Free" - free from the chains we cannot see. "Sorrow," Guilt," and "shame" are no more your name.  "Forgiven and free is who you will be."
