The Common Good

Evangelicals rallying to Catholic cause

Date: March 17, 2012

 

The Sojourners community, under the leadership of Jim Wallis, has long brought together Catholics and Protestants on many social justice concerns. The civil rights struggles of the 1950s and 1960s, especially here in Memphis, served to gather Catholics and Protestants (as well as Jews and members of other faith traditions) in heroic, prophetic and united witness. But by and large, Catholics and evangelical Protestants sadly have been living in two separate worlds.
