Something We Can All Do to Defuse Violence — Article by Eric Nelson

“All it took for Marcus to decide not to kill someone was to be reminded he was a child of God.”

You might want to just stop and take a quick “inspiration” break. That’s because the article we’re about to share will definitely provide you with an uplift.

As you may know by now, we’re all about sharing the “light” that God shines. And especially when that light transforms people in prisons and jails.


So when we read Eric Nelson’s article about a man from his church who had two amazing encounters–one while talking to inmates in a prison setting and the other involving a gang member threatening his family–well, we just had to share these amazing stories with you.

For those of you who may not know Eric or what he does, you should. Beside being a spiritual healer he’s also the Christian Science Committee on Publication for Northern California. Which means he has lots of stories to share and you can read more by visiting his site:
