Stephen at Eastern Iowa Emergent Cohort writes:

Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners and author [of the God’s Politics blog and]Jim Wallis God’s Politics: Why the Right Gets it Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It, will give a free, public lecture 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 in the Main Lounge of the University of Iowa’s Iowa Memorial Union, at the corner of Jefferson and Madison streets. The title of Wallis’ talk is “Biblical Faith and Political Values: A New Vision for America.”Here’s a synopsis: “Jim Wallis senses a profound hunger in America for a politics that appeals to our deepest hopes and values, that unites rather than divides. As an evangelical Christian, he shows how a full biblical faith can contribute to resolving the great moral and political issues of our times: poverty, peace, security, abortion, care of the earth, immigration and the rest.”

Thanks for the tip, Stephen!
