Goodness and Mercy

In a dominant culture that fetishizes crime and punishment while remaining apathetic to the failures of the penal system, our Unitarian Universalist theologies remind us that we can rely on deeper truths of goodness and mercy that still hold each of us accountable in and to the interdependent web of life.

Rev. Allison Farnum is the Minister and Director at the Unitarian Universalist Prison Ministry of Illinois, a statewide ministry that focuses on equipping UU’s to in Illinois to transform institutions and support people harmed by the prison industrial complex. For more information, please visit

Rev. Farnum will be available to speak with folks interested in Prison Ministry and those interested in being part of a Prison Ministry team at UU-C, Rockford in the Library after the service this Sunday.
