I just returned home after attending a Christmas celebration at the women’s division of Cook County Jail. After being out for over 4 years, I was finally approved to enter one of Illinois’ penal institutions, and I must say, the wait was worth it. As a member of TUCC’s Prison Ministry, which holds services at several Illinois prisons, as well as institutions in Indiana and Wisconsin, I have longed to visit and minister to the prisoners. Today, I was allowed to go in. In a small, packed room, we conducted a service for approx. 80 prisoners. The evening was highlighted by the Word being delivered by Pastor Moss. In the way he usually does, he left the ladies gasping for more. His sermon was about Samson and Delilah, and even though I had heard him deliver it before, I got much more out of it this time. It had a lot to do with the group he was preaching to, and the way they responded. Rev. Moss informed the ladies that Samson did more with his life “after” he lost his strength. It was “after he w ...
