'40 Stories of Hope' Launched at Lambeth Palace
There is no one, no life, no story that is beyond God’s power to love and transform’ writes Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, in his foreword to 40 Stories of Hope.
40 Stories of Hope was launched at Lambeth Palace at a gathering of prison chaplains and prison volunteers. The Archbishop is pictured above at the launch with Bishop Richard Moth, the Catholic Bishop for Prisons; Catherine Butcher from HOPE who compiled the book; Pastor Osien Sibanda who contributed some of the stories drawn from his work in Bristol; Bishop James Langstaff, the Church of England Bishop for Prisons and Roy Crowne, executive director of HOPE.
HOPE has compiled 40 Stories of Hope from prisoners, prison chaplains and ex-prisoners, and CWR has published the stories in an attractive book, together with 40 daily readings and prayers, plus group sessions. The book can be used in the weeks leading up to Easter 2018 or at any time. Free copies are available for Prison Chaplains to give away.
Copies can be ordered from CWR here.
