N Street Village Founders Celebrate Book Release

N Street Village founder and current Board Member Gary Maring celebrated the release of his new book Faith, Social Justice, and Public Policy: A Progressive’s View in a heartfelt event at Luther Place Memorial Church this past Sunday.  Many of N Street Village’s original founders, including Pastor John and Erna Steinbruck, were in attendance to celebrate 40 years of social justice work at Luther Place Memorial Church and N Street Village.

Gary’s presentation highlighted the work accomplished over the last 40 years and went on to lay out the social justice challenges facing our city and nation today, such as rapidly increasing income inequality, shortage of good jobs and affordable housing, and federal budget proposals that unfairly target the most vulnerable.  He called for a new progressive movement within the church in cooperation with the progressive spiritual community, social justice oriented evangelicals, and secular social justice advocates.

Gary will sell and sign books this coming Sunday, June 24th after both Luther Place Memorial Church services with the profits going to N Street Village.  The book can also be purchased on Amazon.
