We are in a precarious time, beloved friends.  An unprecedented world wide quarantine has relegated most of us to the four walls of our house while life is, in many ways, on hold.

As this pandemic has exposed the gross inequality in our society, my hope is that a remnant of us will emerge from this pandemic more equipped, more healed, more committed, and more mobilized to seek justice.

For these reasons, I facilitate a Jesus and Justice Online Book Tribe where we read through books together in community. All are welcome; it is a safe space to explore.  We invite the spectrum:

  • Justice Committed

  • Justice Curious

  • Justice Confused   

After we finish each book, we bring in the author for a Community Dialogue, which is always a favorite of this community.
