I’m very excited to announce that the National Faith and Justice Network – a convening of faith and justice organizations in Boston, New York, Baltimore, Oregon and elsewhere – will hold its inaugural training in Washington DC, this spring!

Designed for teams of Christians who are seeking the skills to address the root causes of poverty and injustice in their community, the Conspire Conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn from the top organizers in the country.

We’ve worked closely with Rev. Alexia Salvatierra – a veteran organizer who has worked with architects of the civil rights movement and Latin American peace movements – to design a training that supports the creation of an emerging Christian voice for Biblical justice in American cities.

Registration starts today!

Integrity and the Economic Crisis

Even though Gene and I have been quiet on Anderkoo, we’ve been present elsewhere on the web. Most of my writing has been about the intersection of faith and the economic crisis.

I’ll start linking to some of those posts here on a regular basis, but by way of catch-up here are two that I most appreciate: Integrity and the Economic Crisis on God’s Politics and Consuming our Way to Compassion at Duke’s Call and Response blog. Enjoy!

Globe snowed out

The big effect this weekend’s blizzard had on us today was that we
didn’t get the Globe — nor was it available on the newstands. So, no
Sunday comics :(.

Fortunately, the Globe Magazine online has this interview
with cartoonist James Sturm, founder of the National Association of
Comics Art Educators. I suppose all those ghost artists for The Boondocks have to come from somewhere.
