Like I said, I don’t know much about, but I think I’m going to check this one out. Last year’s planning process brought people of conscience together from all walks of life, making new connections. Since then there have been a number of efforts to sustain this kind of grassroots connectivity at a citywide level. (I’ve even been involved in one or two such efforts myself.) What catches my interest here is the explicitly political nature of it. Such efforts can accumulate baggage very quickly, if they get off the ground at all. Nevertheless, the city could use a new political organization right about now.

  1. In Ann Arbor, there was a regular event called Theology on Tap at the Arbor Brewing Company hosted by St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. They did things like screen Life of Brian, and discuss the references and parody. I like the name.

    I’ve met Andrew Amacker and know Ed McGinnis and am eager to see what sort of a meeting those two would put together.
