    ABOUT ENDING OVERCRIMINALIZATION AND MASS INCARCERATION: HOPE FROM CIVIL SOCIETY

    Mass incarceration is an overwhelming problem and reforms are often difficult, leading to confusion about what to do and where to start. Ending Overcriminalization and Mass Incarceration: Hope from Civil Society introduces the key issues that need immediate attention and provides concrete direction about effective solutions systemically and relationally. In this work Anthony B. Bradley recognizes that offenders are persons with inherent dignity. Mass incarceration results from the systemic breakdown of criminal law procedure and broken communities. Using the principle of personalism, attention is drawn to those areas that directly contact the lives of offenders and determine their fate. Bradley explains how reform must be built from the person up, and once these areas are reformed our law enforcement culture will change for the better. Taking an innovative approach, Anthony B. Bradley explores what civic institutions need to do to prevent people from falling into the criminal justice system and recidivism for those released from prison.

    Poetry and Prayer: The Transfiguration of Self into Another Pattern

    Contact: hannah.silver@tkc.edu

    The Publius Society is pleased to host Prof. Lynda Kong for a lunchtime lecture on Poetry and Prayer: The Transfiguration of the Self into Another Pattern. 

    Taking T. S. Eliot's poem "Little Gidding" of Four Quartets as a starting point, Prof. Kong will lay out several steps that are integral to both the process of composing a poem and that of praying before God in Christ. She will end by suggesting two important differences between poetry and prayer.

    Walk away inspired to read--or write--a poem in a fresh way, and to pray with a renewed heart.
