How do we change how society looks at us? We first have to change how we look at ourselves.
That is the foundation behind WWJDEW’s jail and prison ministry.
When asking a group in jail or prison, “How many times has someone said to you, ‘You’re just like ____ [somebody negative]’?” Every person would raise their hand. They were fighting the stigma in their mind of who they were.
Most of us think of ourselves the way society views us, how we were told who we were, how we were raised. We have to see instead how God views us so we can change how we view ourselves. That’s the key.
Dewey offers a message of hope, encouragement, forgiveness and restoration through his ministry.
