I’ve received this notice from a couple of sources, and keep meaning to share it. For those of you in the Bay Area: Jim Wallis will be speaking in Berkeley on September 11. ‘abc’ and I will have just heard him the previous weekend at the Politics and Spirituality conference we’ll be attending in Pasadena, so I will probably be catching up on homework instead of attending this event:
Christian leader Jim Wallis, author of God’s Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It, will speak about faith and politics at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley on Monday, September 11 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm in an event co-sponsored by the Graduate Theological Union, the Sojourners organization, and the Beatitudes Society. The executive director and editor-in-chief of Sojourners, Wallis brings a progressive message that links personal values with public issues. Prior to his talk, books will be available for purchase from 5:00 to 5:30 pm.
First Congregational Church of Berkeley is located at 2345 Channing Way in Berkeley, California 94704. For more information, contact David Myers at 510/649-2420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
