Topic:          Come As You Are          


 


When

a long-time inmate is released from prison, another sort of misery may be

looming. How is he or she supposed to cope? We asked minister Claude Williams,

who has been involved in youth and women’s prison ministries for decades. Among

the highlights: his conviction that giving your life to God is key—no need to

clean yourself up first.
