San Francisco Thursday, November 11 7 pm The Gospel and Land Policy with KPFA host Gabrielle Wilson
Drinks in Common, the Henry George Historical Society's social themes mixer hosts KPFA legal affairs analyst and Gospel Experience co-host Gabrielle Wilson on Thursday, November 11, 7 pm at Rancho Parnassus, 132 6th St. in San Francisco.
The social gospel movement of the 19th century needs some resurrection, and Ms. Wilson inaugurates that process from the Gospel side on November 11. Is there any hope that Sojourners' Jim Wallis and other self-tasked social justice evangelicals can add "common right to God's Creation" to good deeds as a centerpiece of transforming community dialogue?
The Biblical Covenant with humanity included a recognition that correct land relationships are the basis of justice upon which all other justice is founded. But where is that story now? Come hear a legal mind and gospel-joy-herald rebirth that story at the Bay Area's premier Land Question conversation.
