Faith & Justice

“Don’t go left, don’t go right, go deeper” is one of Jim Wallis’ sayings reflecting his conviction that rather than falling into familiar partisan lines, we should approach public life with a centering of our faith. Jim will share stories from his own life and work around the world of how faith has fueled his advocacy for racial and economic justice, peacemaking, and putting an end to poverty. This keynote will give a snapshot of the current political moment with a strong theological backdrop.
