Sunday, February 714: “If We Love Our People We Will Set Them Free” with Rev. Jason M. Lydon

The US incarcerates more people than anywhere else in the world. In Massachusetts there are over 23,000 people in prison. Since its inception both reformists and abolitionists have fought against the prison system. We will discuss some of the current campaigns going on and address some of the tensions between reformists and abolitionists.

The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources.
