Episode 006: John Lemasters, The Leper And The Incarcerated, The Outcast Of Society

In this sixth episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interviewed John Lemasters a former pastor, evangelist, and chaplain. John shares about his past involvement in prison ministry through Prison Fellowship and most recently by performing a one man drama called “The Leper.” He shares how there are many similarities between the story of the leper in the Bible and those who are incarcerated. At one point in the interview John shifts into the voice of the leper in the drama and walks us through an abridged version. You will be challenged and blessed by this story!

At the end of the interview John encourages us to become the stretcher barriers of those who are incarcerated, challenging us that our best resources for prison ministry are a pencil, paper and prayer.
