 “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown”

 The Musical “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown”, written by Clark M. Gesner, brought the whole gang to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church May 12th for a Kairos Prison Ministry fundraiser.
Over one hundred guests, friends, family and crew gathered for a live look at scenes from your favorite comic strip, Peanuts. Our dinner was fabulous, and the play delightful. Thanks to Cabaret Dinner Theatre, under artistic Director Paul Moore, and resident chef Ron Smith for a thoroughly enjoyable evening that contributed greatly to Kairos Prison Ministry in North Louisiana.

David Wade Correctional Center Kairos #42

Kairos #42 concluded Sunday, March 19, with thirty residents of David Wade Correctional Center being introduced to their larger Kairos Community as they met both many of the ongoing community within the prison and more than three dozen outside guests who joined them in Hope Chapel for the closing service. Our newest Kairos members were greeted and encouraged by Chaplain Johnnie Adkins and the 4th Day speaker, Manuel Pelcastre, who attended Kairos #38 in March of 2015.

On Saturday, March 25, almost all of the participants returned for a day of additional instruction and assistance in forming Prayer and Share Groups, the essential tools for maintaining a strong Kairos Community within the walls of David Wade.

 

 

Kairos #42 at David Wade Correctional Center  was March 16 – 19, 2017.

The David Wade Kairos Advisory Council is deeply indebted to the congregation
and clergy at First United Methodist Church in Homer, without whose gracious
assistance these Kairos weekends would be almost impossible.
