Rev. Jeannie Alexander, Director of No Exceptions Prison Collective, draws a comparison between the treatment of incarcerated people to the man in the story of the Gerasene Demoniac (Mark 5:1-20 NIV).
The following reflective questions are based on Rev. Jeannie Alexander's video, "Gerasene Demoniac". Discuss them in a group setting or reflect on them individually.
As addressed in Jeannie Alexander's video, "The Gerasene Demoniac" comparing the story found in Mark 5: 1-20 to the treatment of people in our prison systems, one major issue faced by incarcerated persons is a lack of acceptance and tolerance from those who have never experienced prison. This action provides ways in which we can all improve our ability to accept others -acceptance being something that every human deserves.
