Item description for Jesus, Volunteers And Our City Misdemeanor Courts by Keith J. Leenhouts...
Overview The author of this book is a retired judge who has spent most of his professional career establishing and mentoring volunteer programs for misdemeanor and juvenile courts nationwide. There have been some seven million volunteer mentors and supporting professional volunteers involved. Independent research has verified their great effectiveness. His leadership is solid, effective and inspiring. He is a Christian who is deeply rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is an alleluia from head to foot. This program he has put together is the living out of the message and teachings of Jesus. He would add that others than Christians whose lives reflect the disciplined love of Jesus are also involved in our best, perhaps only, hope to meet the challenge of crime in and to a free society." Reverend Morris Johnson S t . Pa u l , M i n n e s o ta To paraphrase an honored hymn of the church - "Rise up ye people of God, The courts for you do wait. It's strength unequal to the task, Rise up and make her great." There is an old story of the student who thought he would out-wit his professor. He approached the professor with his hands behind his back. In each hand he carefully held a live infant bird. His plan was to ask the professor which hand held the live bird. Which ever hand the professor chose, the student planned to crush the bird, thus showing the professor and his fellow students the learned scholar was wrong. However, the wise professor quickly said, "Young friend. The answer is in your hands." Christians and those whose lives reflect the disciplined love of Jesus, "The answer is in your hands." Volunteer mentors and supporting volunteers are our greatest weapon in our war against crime. We hope you will become involved. Here is how!
