Growing Toward God: We All Get Healed
In this DVD program Jim Wallis discusses the relationships between poverty and war, fear and security and urges the listeners and the nation to do more to combat global poverty. The editor of Sojourners Magazine, Jim Wallis, discusses the relationships between poverty and war, fear and security, invoking Martin Luther King’s view that the only security is a common security. He also urges the listeners and the nation to do more to combat global poverty, quoting the prophet Micah’s vision of each person “sitting under his own vine and fig tree.”
This adult education series incorporates a video on DVD and Leader's Guide, which allows each segment’s teachings to be taught to a group or utilized for independent study. The resource guide presents a format for an eight session course and gives the course leader specific points of discussion, debate and activities for participants. An alternative model for conducting the course as a weekend retreat, with examples of daily schedules and activities is also included.
This resource supports the Millenium Development Goals. It was inspired by, and is wrapped around, a keynote address Jim Wallis gave at the Spiritual Formation Summit sponsored by Trinity Church, Wall Street.
