A Matter of Spirit, known by its acronym, AMOS, is the quarterly justice journal of IPJC with analysis, theological reflection and actions. Our Governing Council selects four topics for the year, which are then turned over to our Editorial Board to determine articles and writers. 

Feel free to use the information contained in the current or previous issues of AMOS. If you find the information valuable enough to share with others, we ask that you note that the material was found in AMOS, published by the Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center. Also, please let us know how you are making use of AMOS!

Back issues are available for most issues of AMOS. Call 206.223.1138 or e-mail
