The Common Good

Grace Cathedral's The Forum: "On God's Side"

May 5, 2013 - 9:30am - 10:30am
Speaker: Jim Wallis & Dean Dr. Jane Shaw

On May 5, Jim Wallis will be a guest speaker at Grace Cathedral's The Forum, where he will speak on key issues from his new book On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics hasn't Learned About Serving the Common Good (Brazos Press, 2013). Jim will join Grace Cathedral's dean, Dr. Jane Shaw, and the clergy of the church for a  stimulating conversation about faith and ethics. 

Attendees are invited to join the congregation for the 11 a.m. Choral Eucharist immediately following The Forum.

New York Times bestselling author Jim Wallis thinks our life together can be better. In his new book, Jim shows us how to reclaim Jesus’ ancient and compelling vision of the common good—a vision that impacts and inspires not only our politics but also our personal lives, families, churches, neighborhoods, and world. He thinks it’s time to ask what it means to be on God’s side, rather than claim God to be on ours.
