Writing Our Way Out – Season 2

S2 – E4: The End of An Eye for an Eye
Virginia once led the nation in the death penalty. Recently, that ended. How did a southern state that was once a leader in executions become, a leader to end it? And where do we go from here? What happens to the ethical and political dilemmas for and against the death penalty?


S2 – E3: Trust the Truth
When Tony Martin was freed from prison, he was not the same person. He had surrendered to Christ, written courageously about his life, and in these ways figured out the secret to lasting change. You have to trust the truth. He was blessed to see that vision come true in his new life. He died from natural causes at home and at peace in February of 2021. In this episode, we remember his story, his spirit, and his secret for lasting change.
