Here’s my theory for how things get better:

Dear Friends:

Here’s my theory for how things get better:
* based on my experience building an artistic and activist church of 900 members

First create a place where people of goodwill and many faiths can find each other.

Then bind their hearts in a movement for love and justice.

It’s why I am hitting the road this fall – to create more of these places around the country.

I’m joining the Together Tour with three AMAZING women—Valarie Kaur, Glennon Doyle Melton, and Seane Corn.

We all share a belief that every part of our country can be a safe, thriving and welcoming place if we use the power of love to make it so. Love. Period.

The six-city tour will be heading to Portland, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Denver and we are looking for allies like you to join us in this important work of creating change. Tickets are on sale now.

Click here to get your ticket and join this movement.

Each date of the tour will be a night of inspiration and connection.

That’s what we do. We are a tribe of truth-tellers, visionaries, and dreamers.

And we can’t wait to connect with you – and help you connect with others – in ever widening circles of love.

That’s my agenda: To spread faith in Love as a power that heals. Love. Period.

That is the sermon I have been preaching. That is what I am traveling to tell you, to show you!

Love will liberate us; a God of Love will free us to liberate one another! We need a love revolution. At home. Right here. Right now!

Join us in this revolution this fall! Tickets for the Together Tour available here.

In love,
Jacqui

PS: If those six cities are too far from you, I’m building a Love. Period. Crew online to help us connect in circles of support and activism. Want the chance to participate in specific tasks that will help you create love, everywhere? Click here to join the Love. Period. Crew.

There’s a video there of a benediction on ending racism. Check it out for a taste of Middle Church on Sunday and the Together Tour across the country.
