J Street Blog Takeover

Friends- This blog has gone unnoticed for several months. Apologies, and thanks to those who have interacted thru dialogue, email, twitter, etc.

What better opportunity to return to regular blogging than today, as I’m en route to DC for the J Street national conference, Making History.

Check here for updates the next few days as I hear speakers, attend discussions, and advocate to congress.

I hope you’ll stay engaged upon my return; coming up we have Interfaith Seder, ongoing conversation & community, and the launch of an ancient worship experience in modern terms.

Your partner in peace-

Our First Conversation with Lockerbie/Earth House

As I left our time together Sunday evening I couldn’t be more excited about the relationships we started to build that will only be strengthened in the coming weeks, months, and even years. I couldn’t agree more with the words Jordan wrote Monday:

Here’s a community genuinely trying to figure out how to live lives in the way of this Jewish rabbi whose words often sound more like a Buddhist monk than the type of Christians you see on CNN or Fox News. A community continually checking whether it is following the words of Micah by acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly. A community who – though quite small – has taken this mission seriously and partnered with locals of diverse beliefs and backgrounds to create a safe space and an incredible community partnership through Earth House

As the representative and chief conversation partner of the Indianapolis Interfaith Conversation Network I warmly welcome you to a community of relationship, dialogue and peace.  I also invite you to join our group on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

In the next few days I look forward to connecting with you through email and our social media channels. I’ll be sending out an invite and Facebook event later in the week to announce our first “official” conversation.

In the meantime please reach out to me individually if you have any thoughts, ideas, questions, or would like to grab coffee one-on-one. I’m always up for it.

I encourage you to share your enthusiasm for our group with others. #FF us on Twitter. Like our Facebook fan page. Repost links to our site through your sphere of influence.

Shalom. Salaam. Peace.
