Time:
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Location: Luther Place Memorial Church (1226 Vermont Ave, NW, Washington, D.C.)
Getting Here: Limited street parking available. You may park in the garage at the Washington Plaza Hotel across the street from the church for $4; ask church for parking voucher.  Luther Place Memorial Church is within a few blocks of the McPherson Square (orange and blue) Metro station. All are welcome! No need to RSVP.


Gary says, “For me, this book is the culmination of a year-plus endeavor to get down on paper what I have learned over the last 40 years being involved at Luther Place Memorial Church and immersed in development of the most amazing interreligious social justice initiatives like N Street Village.”

Schroeder Stribling, Executive Director of N Street Village says about the book, “Gary Maring’s voice is critically important for our times – this book is an exhortation to people of all spiritual traditions to respond in faith to the serious social justice issues of today. His perspective echoes the passionate response of the interfaith founders of N Street Village which has become a demonstration of hope and reconciliation on the small scale of our city. I trust that his words will inspire and encourage readers to create and sustain other such effective examples of justice and social change.”
