Cook County Jail

Back in the saddle about one or two times per month until near summer 2016 with my friends in the Willow Creek team doing music and speaking at CCJ.

About 40 inmates came tonight, very attentive, great chats and prayer afterward. Just an amazing team (as always) and so glad to be able to work with them!

So many of the incarcerated have been in and out of jail, addictions a massive problem, trying to come up with money one way or another and nearly all with a load of family issues. But many were/are quite serious about knowing and walking with Jesus. The couple who simply show up to get out of their cell for a few hours almost always end up pretty serious at the end.

Brought in 2 cigarbox guitars tonight. Had a good chat with a couple guards as well.

Yes. Grace. As I often say, “The difference between you and me is you got caught and I got saved”. Truth. I was more likely to die of an overdose before I got locked up.

Whew. Grace!!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 -Glenn
