Script #171

Friends,

Frank, a member of our family of faith, has been incarcerated for six months with a trial to be scheduled in early 2014.

He has given permission to me to mention his name with his request which I am doing via this script in a Matthew 25 kinda way.

His current income is limited to a disability allowance of $129 a month.  With no savings and continuing bills, he has limited resources for making telephone calls to loved ones at 50-65 cents per minute and purchasing personal items.

Frank figures benevolent assistance of $10 a week will carry him through the trial and verdict.

If our Lord is nudging you to help Frank, please make your donations to the church and designate them for Frank; or if you would like to help directly, you can take cash or money orders to the Boone County Jail.

Also, Frank appreciates visitors and mail.

Just as we are expected to extend agape to everyone - as recently reflected in our call to reclaim rainbows - disagreeing with behaviors or suspecting innocence/guilt do not inhibit our active love as exemplified by Jesus: "As you do it to/for them, you do it to/for Me."


Blessings and Love!
