The Common Good

Seattle First Baptist: "On God's Side"

April 17, 2013 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Speaker: Jim Wallis

New York Times bestselling author Jim Wallis thinks our life together can be better. In his latest book, On God’s Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn’t Learned About Serving the Common Good  (Brazos Press, 2013), 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.

Join progressive evangelical author and social justice advocate, Jim Wallis as he shares selections and stories from his new book, on April 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of Seattle First Baptist Church. This event is free and open to the public.
