“Love is contraband in Hell,
Cause love is an acid
that eats away bars.”

Breaking down prison walls – May 19, 2019

Acts 16:16-40

RMC has been part of an interfaith group that spends time at the NC women’s prison, celebrating birthdays and sharing times of worship.

Prisons are created to get people out of the way. They did in the day of Paul and Silas, and they do so today. As Willy Jennings has said, prisons are never about criminals; they’re about societies. They’re a tool for control and containment.

To believe in Jesus is to be set free, just as the jailer was from the jail and the prisoner from the prison.

Facing Imprisonment for our Beliefs – April 22, 2018

Claire Unruh provided the sermon this Sunday based on the story of Paul and Silas’s imprisonment recounted in Acts 16:16-34. They were jailed after casting out a demon in a slave girl.

Claire used the story as a springboard to recount other stories of people who have been imprisoned because of their beliefs as conscientious objectors to war or the death penalty. Standing up to and resisting systems of violence is a way to bring light and change in our world.
