Well friend, this week it’s just you and me! On this episode of Have Hope; Will Travel, we’re talking about my recent experience with jury duty.
Did you just groan a little inside? Let’s talk about why we have that negative reaction and what we can do about it.
Join us today as we talk about what it means to bring curiosity and dignity to those involved in the justice system—from the court workers, to the defendant, and to the wider community affected by the crime in question.
- Why is everyone so negative in response to being called for jury duty?
- What is it like as a pastor, as another human, to be faced with a murder trial?
- What does it mean to bring justice to both sides?
- My questions that go beyond the courtroom:
- Why were the people of color and women dismissed from jury selection?
- What is the deeper story of the man (the defendant) sitting in front of me?
- What was the deeper story of the other man (the victim)?
- What does it look like to allow today’s circumstances to impact your growth?
