I saw this phrase on the wayside pulpit of a church right around the corner from my home congregation. I wondered what the UU version of making our lives a sermon would be? As I explore that question, I will share my work with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women through my ministry, Circles of Spirit.

Alice Diebel is a community minister affiliated with the Miami Valley UU Fellowship in Dayton, Ohio. Her focus in the community is on reforming our systems of mass incarceration and reaching out with compassion to people who have been affected by incarceration. The ministry involves the love and care of a pastor and the active voice of the prophet. Diebel has been a UU for over 30 years and decided to pursue the ministry after receiving a “calling” from the voices of people deeply involved in criminal justice reform, voices such as Bryan Stevenson and Michelle Alexander.
