What: Discussion with Author Jim Wallis

When: January 7,[masked]:30 PM

Riverside Church

New York, NY 10027

Please join us for the national launch of Jim Wallis newest book Rediscovering Values: On Wall Street, Main Street and Your Street- A Moral Compass for the New Economy.

Singer/songwriter Joy Ike will kick off the evening with music and the program will include diverse panel of local and national leaders representing labor, finance, social justice, and ethics. This night is sure to be much more than a book launch as we raise the volume on a timely national conversation about moral and economic recovery.

So join the conversation. In Rediscovering Values, Wallis argues that while we are all waiting for an economic recovery what is most needed is a moral recovery. With a critical eye towards big bank bail-outs and bonuses, Wallis urges us to place more worth on family, faith and social justice. He offers up twenty moral exercises to challenge individuals, and communities because nothing will change until we do.

Jim Wallis is a bestselling author, public theologian, speaker, preacher, and international commentator on religion and public life, faith and politics. He is President and Chief Executive Officer of Sojourners where he is editor-in-chief of Sojourners magazine. Wallis' previous books include the New York Times best-sellers God's Politics and The Great Awakening.
