There are struggles continuing within our country on so many fronts, often invisible to those in power or even in comfortable conditions, but badly in need of a cadre of those to faithfully walk with the beleaguered and afflicted. Joe Ellwanger's memoir, Strength for the Struggle: Insights from the Civil Rights Movement and Urban Ministry, talks of the many ways he and those around him have entered into those struggles, from working alongside Martin Luther King, Jr, to equality from women and gays, to walking supportively alongside immigrants and those who've been incarcerated. Full of devotion, and walking humbly, Joseph Ellwanger gives glimpses into the nitty-gritty of bringing about the Peaceable Kingdom.
Joe has been active with St Paul Lutheran Church in Birmingham, Alabama, Cross Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Hephatha Lutheran Church, MICAH - Milwaukee Inner-city Congregations Allied for Hope and the state-level organization, WISDOM.
