We had a great evening with everyone last night. Thanks for the great food and excellent conversation.

Our next discussion will focus around an article out of this month’s Sojourner’s Magazine.

As I mentioned here is the main article for discussion: Seeking the ‘Fair Balance’ found here. But there were a lot of great articles in the magazine. Here are links to other articles in the series! I think the article Wall Street and Christian Conscience directly relates to the main article’s points as well.
