TITLE:   Common Ground
The Center for Church and Prison
     
DATE:   02/03/2011
     
DESCRIPTION:   During the first half of the show, host Steve Tompkins talks with The Center for Church and Prison director Reverend George Walters–Sleyon about the significance of religion on some who are incarcerated to improve their station in life while inside and upon their release. The Center for Church and Prison works to link the Church with the prison and prisoners to develop programs and initiatives that help rehabilitate and restore the prisoner to faith, virtue and family values, consequently promoting them to become quality citizens upon release and not re-offend.
