Jim Wallis and Glenn Beck Meet for Social Justice Dialogue


Jim Wallis                             Glenn Beck

On the eve of Good Friday, recognizing that sad and tragic events often dominate the headlines, airwaves, and even our own blog, a dose of the “best medicine” might help us all make it through to the joy of Easter.

With that in mind, here’s some surprising news: Though Jim Wallis is allegedly on vacation with his family this week, we were able to obtain footage of a top secret meeting between Jim and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck! Apparently, Beck finally accepted Jim’s offer to dialogue, and the two met in an undisclosed location. You may not recognize their faces in the video, because they are wearing disguises to avoid the media spotlight while discussing such a sensitive topic. But we think you’ll find their conversation a truly fascinating and unforgettable tete-a-tete.

Sojourners note: We sincerely hope that you enjoyed this little April Fools’ Day project in the spirit in which it was intended — just good fun, and a needed break from the usual trials and tribulations. All quotes were scrupulously pulled from relevant in-context references (except for Jim’s last one!) and no phrases were artificially reconstructed to make someone say anything they didn’t originally mean. (That was last year’s Rush Limbaugh video.) Perhaps some day such a conversation could really take place, but until then, may we all live in the joy and hope of Easter, in expectation of the miracle of reconciliation through the love of Jesus Christ!
