The Common Good

Noted author at Aspen Chapel this Wednesday

Date: June 24, 2013

At 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Aspen Chapel is hosting a talk and book signing with New York Times Best-Selling Author, Jim Wallis. We are thrilled that Wallis will present highlights from his latest book, “On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned About Serving the Common Good,” at the chapel in a public setting before he speaks at the Aspen Ideas Festival this week.

To preview, an excerpt from Jim’s book: “… our challenge is to rise above political ideology and lead on moral grounds. Don’t go right, don’t go left; go deeper. The common good is about so much more than partisan politics. It grows out of our personal and family lives, our vocational callings, the mission and witness of our congregations, the moral power of social movements, and the independent integrity of prophetic religious leadership in our public life as we fight not just for “our” rights but for the rights of all people.”
