The Common Good

Seeking common ground

Date: April 14, 2005
I hope to involve local Democratic and Republican leaders in a discussion of the Rev. Jim Wallis' book, "God's Politics: A New Vision for Faith and Politics in America — Why the Right gets it Wrong and the Left doesn't get it." Wallis, the editor of Sojourners Magazine, was responsible for full-page ads in the New York Times and other newspapers during the 2004 presidential campaign, saying, "God is not a Republican or a Democrat."
