  Lish Mannetter   Lish Mannetter is passionate knitter and musician, who serves a weekly bible study and worship service inside Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (the state prison for women in Oregon). Lish’s witness of the revolving door of incarceration, and the tremendous odds against successful transition, make her a passionate advocate for exploring a new and better way for our brothers and sisters in prison. Lish brings over 25 years experience as a premium auditor for a large insurance carrier, and has been serving as a DOC religious volunteer for four years.  “The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25: 35–40) Notice that the passage does not say, “For I was hungry and you gave a check to the local food bank, I was thirsty and you gave money to a relief fund, I was a stranger and you supported a homeless shelter, I needed clothes and you made a quick drop-off at Goodwill, I was sick and you donated to a Christian medical outreach, I was in prison and you supported Prison Fellowship.” There is nothing wrong with doing any or all of the above, but I would suggest we all need to mix in a little more personal contact. There is a time to give money to charity and a time to give of yourself. You won’t get the same kind of blessings or personal growth out of sending a check from the safety of your home that you would from rolling up your sleeves and actually touching someone. Yeah, I’m too busy too. Yeah, it makes me uncomfortable.” -When Bad Christians Happen to Good People;  Dave Burchett
