Of the persons who gathered at the “Just Elders” retreat, many are preacher and organizers who have earned their living in part by writing.

Just Elders are people who have stories to tell.

Experience to share.

They are experts who can train and mentor others in the art of faith and values based organizing.

They know long and short term history.

Many are issue experts.

Others are expert at cutting issues and outlining issue campaigns.

Still others have the gift of reflecting on life in ways that bring powerful perspective our journey.

We hope the words that will be writing at www.justelders.org will bend the arc of history a little more toward justice.
