Restorative Justice: A Reflection of the Reign of Christ

Bulmer, Garth
June 4, 2015

Source: (2002) Sermon presented on November 24 to the Church of St. John the Evangelist, Ottawa.

In this sermon, the Reverend Canon Garth Bulmer reflects on restorative justice and Restorative Justice Week, beginning with his own experience as a prison chaplain as a young man. That experience changed his life and shaped his ministry. Thus he considers in brief the nature of restorative justice; issues and problems related to the use of incarceration; restorative justice and liberty, equality, and fraternity; circles of support and accountability; and restorative justice as a contemporary model of the reign of Christ.
