I cannot exaggerate the respect I have for Rev. Jackson. When I found out that Dr. Adam Clark and I were going to be visited by Rev. Jackson and Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim I was beyond thrilled.
The brand new book, Keeping Hope Alive is out now in PRINT and in AUDIO. Since the book is a collection of sermons and speeches, I found the audiobook extremely compelling. I don’t think I have teared up and been so full of hope washing dishes with Rev. Jackson in my ear.

Both a cry for action and a comfort for our anxious souls, Rally addresses issues of social justice through lament and celebration. Using a call-and-response format, the litanies in this resource were created to unite us in prayer and common mission. Rally provides words for concerned Christians who yearn to lift their voices to God with their community to confront injustice in its many forms:
racial and gender inequality • economic disparity • white privilege • abuse of power • violence • mistreatment of migrants and refugees • people pushed to the margins of society
The selections in this resource evoke hope and connection, guiding us as we sift through the headlines, lament the destruction of the earth, and ask for the grace to love alike though we don’t think alike. God commands us to love one another in a way that values each member of the human family. Without exception.
