November Share the Plate is New Beginnings-Next Step
New Beginnings- Next Step is a peer-support group for returning citizens as they transition from incarceration to freedom. It is run both for, and with, ex-offenders, along with a vital and growing group of compassionate volunteer-facilitators, in order to build a community of hope and a culture of accountability and possibility on the streets of Wilmington, Delaware.
New Beginnings-Next Step is the sister group of New Beginnings, which was founded by Brother David Schlatter, O.F.M. in the early nineties. Since 2005 it has been run by singer-songwriter John Flynn. Like New Beginnings-Next Step, the group is open to those of all faiths.
John Flynn is an American singer-songwriter and activist known for his powerful music and tireless efforts on behalf of “the lost and the lonely, the shackled and scarred.” You can hear John perform on November 26 here at UUFN! See Tami Ring-Kuchenbeiser for tickets or go online.
