Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis: Sister Helen Prejean of Dead Man Walking fame.

Sister Helen Prejean

My interview with Sister Helen Prejean.

A Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis on location special at Naropa University.

The nun behind the best-selling Dead Man Walking best-selling book and movie (in which she was played by Susan Sarandon) offers a Christianity that’s about mercy, compassion, forgiveness, humor—a Christianity that simultaneously transcends and directly engages politics. Because life’s too short, and precious, for judgment or class welfare!

“It’s all about waking up,” Sister Helen says. Amen to that!

    So frustrated my computer must be too old for the newest vimeo videos! Can't get this video to come through except in staggered blips. What I can hear is profound. Hearing the words, the story from her mouth, puts life in perspective pretty quickly..the story of the two fathers from Columbine takes your breath away. Your honest and open questions make this a very special interview. This is an interview that should be posted everywhere. People need to hear her message of forgiveness and hear what true Christianity is as opposed to the institution and "religion". I hope you post this on youtube as well.

    If the video doesn't come through, try pushing the "turn off HD button"

    …Mr. Sharp overstates his case by asserting that "Had rapist/murderer Matthew Poncelet not been properly sentenced to death by the civil authority, he would not have met Sister Prejean, he would not have received spiritual instruction, he would not have taken responsibility for his crimes and he would not have reconciled with God." While Poncelt might not have met Prejean if he hadn't been on death row, how could Sharp possibly assert that that would be the only way for Poncelt to have had spiritual instruction or to have come to God?"

    Talk about creating Fiction.
