An Evening with Jim Wallis: How Faith Impacts Our Engagement with Public Life

About this Event

Join Sojourners and 1440 Multiversity for an evening conversation and book signing with New York Timesbestselling author Jim Wallis and special guests on the ways Jesus speaks directly to the heart of our political, spiritual, and moral crises.

Following dialogue about his book Christ in Crisis (available for purchase at the event) and how faith impacts our engagement with public life, Jim will participate in a panel discussion and audience Q&A alongside best-selling author and Harvard Business School senior fellow Bill George; Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque of the Community Church of Barrington (Illinois); and moderator Rev. Adam Russell Taylor, the executive director of Sojourners. The discussion will include thoughtfully framed questions posed to provide modern-day answers, such as how we live lives of purpose and courage amid a deeply polarized and divided country; what is needed from our global leadership during this time of challenge and opportunity; and what you can do to strengthen and activate your leadership skills to bring about collective, transformative change.
