We invite you to share a FEARLESS Christmas.
This is a call to people of all faiths and denominations who live in the dark shadow of misguided law and public policy:
You deserve to participate in this time of joy, without fear. Please join us for a FEARLESS celebration at 7 p.m. Monday, December 15, at Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha. Park in the lot located on the east side of the building. Come in through the east entrance, which is just off that lot. We hope you will join us, and we hope you will bring with you someone else who would benefit from being part of our network. FEARLESS is exclusively for registered citizens and family members or friends who wish to accompany them to our meeting. We do not permit law enforcement, therapists, probation/parole officers or other representatives of the sex-offender industry to attend.
We will provide beverages and Christmas buffet foods. You may bring something to add to the buffet if you wish, but if all you bring is yourself, we’ll be happy.
We want to be somewhat less structured than we have previously at FEARLESS. But some topics we might put on the table include:
- Despite a law designed to wreck my life, I am blessed with incredible gifts: My friends, the connections I’ve found through Nebraskans Unafraid, food, a place to sleep, useful work. I’m a registered citizen with many reasons to celebrate.
- When our family is shattered by the incarceration of a loved one, putting up decorations and celebrating the season is so very difficult. But I will do it. It is important that we do this — we might be shattered, but only temporarily. Maintaining a family celebration can feel like healing.
- To thrive and survive in spite of the state, it is important for me to BE HERE NOW. Neither wallowing in regret for the past nor fearing the future will do me or anyone else any good.
- FEARLESS is a family in the making: We are so fortunate to have found one another. That calls for a party!
Please join us on Monday, December 15.
