Be sure to check out the newest episode of our In Their Shoes podcast series! “Episode 49: Prison and Aftercare Ministries” features an interview with Rev. Errol Cooper, associate pastor of First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset, New Jersey. The congregation at First Baptist is deeply engaged in this ministry with members and with the community. Our conversation includes why there may be more people connected with the judicial system in your congregation than you’re aware; why this ministry is so critical, and some ideas for how you can engage in it yourself.

There’s a new podcast episode available in our “In Their Shoes” podcast series! In this episode, we hear from Maureen Locke, a registered nurse with an obstetrics and gynecology practice, on the issue of domestic violence. Maureen, with 30 years of experience in OB/GYN, also serves as a trainer of other medical practitioners on the issue of domestic violence. In this episode, we discuss how Maureen identifies victims or possible victims and what she is able, and is not able, to do. We also discuss the effect of domestic violence on children, teen dating relationships, and suggestions for what we all could do if we become aware of possible situations of domestic violence among family or friends.
