I’ve been asked (very politely) to give a plug for the forthcoming Values, vision and the via media conference, and I’m very pleased to accede.
Who speaks for “Christian Values” in America today? Does the Religious Right speak for all Christians or is there a progressive perspective on Christian Values that has been sadly lacking in the public discourse?
Since November 2004, progressive Christians across the country have been mobilizing to respond to those questionsâ€”organizing to claim their tradition, to work as a united front for social justice, and to publicly disavow the fringe radicals who have attempted to co-opt the name of the church in America.
Sounds like the sort of thing I’d want to go to if I was able. Washington DC is a fair trip from Swansea, so sadly I’ll have to forego the pleasure. The cost sounds high, but I gather there are arrangements available for those who are strapped for cash.
