The Common Good

Jim Wallis speaks at Fairmount Church April 25

Date: April 24, 2012

Bestselling author, theologian and public ethics commentator Jim Wallis speaks Wednesday night, April 25, at 7:30 at Fairmount Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights.

Wallis, the founder and editor of Sojourners magazine, plans to focus his talk on this year’s presidential election, and ask the question “Are People of Faith Ready for Post-Candidate Politics?” Wallis notes that “the one thing that unites us all, from the Tea Party to the Occupy Wall Street protestors, is that something in our country has gone terribly wrong and Washington is too broken to fix it.” He says, “People of faith should not shirk away from politics but rather find better ways to engage in politics that do not compromise our faith.” Wallis advocates “building post-candidate politics where people matter more than parties.”
