Recently I had the opportunity to speak to Jim Wallis of Sojourners . Since my college years I have followed and admired the work of this community.
"Sojourners is a national Christian organization committed to faith in
action for social justice. We seek to inspire hope and build a movement
to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world. With a
40-year history, Sojourners is a nonpartisan leader that convenes,
builds alliances among, and mobilizes people of faith, focusing on
racial and social justice, life and peace, and environmental
stewardship. Working through Sojourners magazine, Sojourners’ website sojo.net, public speaking events, media outreach, educational resources, books, advocacy, and trainings, Sojourners is an internationally influential voice at the intersection of faith, politics, and culture." (from their website).
His recent book is entitled "On God's Side: What Religion Forgets And Politics Hasn't Learned About Serving The Common Good".
