If It Were Not For the Grace of God There go I

Chaplain Washington has found that the best way to approach an individual who have found themselves incarcerated at the Howard County Detention Center is with an attitude of “If it were not for the grace of God, there go I.” Inmates have the tendency to drop their guards and tell you what is really going on with them, when you are transparent.  They will tell you about their past and how life has taken them into places like the Howard County Detention Center. Chaplain Washington has seen some of the toughest men and women brake down in tears.  The Chaplain always informs them that they are not responsible for the hand that was dealt them, but they are responsible for the choices they make today.
