“Let justice roll down like waters.” Amos 5:24 Dear Friends and Colleagues,  Last week’s email about A.A. generated a LOT of responses. I read every email that comes in and try to each one. Always grateful for your thoughts and engagement. The responses I received underscore an important point, the experiences people have with A.A. are just as diverse as the experiences people have with attending church. Some people have experienced a life-giving community of hope and acceptance; others alienation and judgement. The best research we have shows participation in the program is effecti ..read more

“Let justice roll down like waters.” Amos 5:24 Dear Friends and Colleagues,  It has been exciting to see the growth of this community over the past year with the work of my colleague Timothy McMahan King.  I’ve been working diligently on a book that will articulate a theological framework for ending the so-called War on Drugs. I will be excited to share this project with you in the future.  While I know our supporters are across the country, I wanted to share with you a letter we are collecting clergy and faith leader signatures to send to the Illinois General Assembly.  T ..read more

“Let justice roll down like waters.” Amos 5:24 Dear Friends and Colleagues,  The other week we set a record for this newsletter. We had more unsubscribes from our email criticizing the drug policy priorities in Biden’s State of the Union than ever before.  That's ok, this newsletter isn’t for everyone.  The creation of the “War on Drugs” has been a bipartisan project, and our criticism of it will span the partisan spectrum as well. Since we lost some subscribers last week, we have a request for those of you who have stuck around: will you help us spread the word? Maybe you ..read more

It all begins with an idea. Maybe you want to launch a business. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference. Don’t worry about sounding professional. Sound like you. There are over 1.5 billion websites out there, but your story is what’s going to separate this one from the rest. If you read the words back and don’t hear your own voice in your head, that’s a good sign you still have more work to do. Be clear, be confident and don’t overthink it. T ..read more

“Let justice roll down like waters.”Amos 5:24 Dear Friends and Colleagues,  In the world of addiction treatment the is ubiquitous. Maia Szalavitz noted in a column this week for the New York Times that 90% of residential addiction treatment centers in the United States are centered in 12-Step methodology.  She acknowledges that many people, including herself for a time, found critical help and support in the program. But far too often, this explicitly spiritual approach, one deemed religious by the courts, is the only option.  She highlights a few problems including lack of opti ..read more

THE CLERGY FOR NEW DRUG POLICY WEEKLY NEWS ROUND-UP “Let justice roll down like waters.”Amos 5:24 Dear Friends and Colleagues,   I am inspired by those parents who have lost a child to overdose and chosen to share their story and their pain. In his State of the Union speech, President Biden shared the story of Doug Griffin, from my home state of New Hampshire, who lost his daughter Courtney to an overdose. Across the country grieving family members have, as President Biden said last night, “turned pain into purpose, working to end stigma and change laws.” It was fitting to honor a pa ..read more
