As I live into my new title, I am discerning how best to share updates of my work as Pastor of Public Witness. In an attempt to broaden the scope of LABC communications, I will post my monthly column on the church website, Facebook page, and via my blog. March’s contribution will highlight the importance of engaging in our political system as an expression of our deepest values – a timely reminder as we prepare to vote. You can read my column here: givingvoicetothestruggle.com.

Additionally, I invite you to join me at the Soup and Study table on 3rd Tues-days, where I will be leading a Bible Study on justice and public witness.
