Partisanship and Christ’s Healing Power | A Conversation with Jim Wallis

Divide, tree, urban
Leadership Foundations

Leadership Foundations

In this City as Playground episode, Jim Wallis — founder of Sojourners and author of the recently released Christ in Crisis: Why we Need to Reclaim Jesus — join us. Together, we explore Jesus’ distinct response to our all-too-human tendency to build walls, make enemies, and create deep divides in our society and world.

Join as we explore the role of leadership and the power of the gospel to transform those wounds. Whether their character is political, racial, ideological, our world is in desperate need for such healing today.

What book, movie, quote, or tv show has most shaped your understanding of leadership or the city?   

A quote that has shaped my understanding of leadership and the city is, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

While the amount of work there is to do to transform cities is great, this quote reminds me that we are freed from having to complete it all, though our obligation to continue remains. We may never see a huge transformation in our lifetime. The work stretches far beyond us. However, this does not make our acts of faithfulness in the day to day less significant, no matter how small they may seem.
