Ok, so this isn’t exactly my ad in Politico…but I am one of the 4000+ pastors who signed on to this:
Sojo invited me to write “2-3 sentences” about my support for this movement which they will distribute to local media. I admit I hope I will get contacted about this. I find this very important, a time and place we who follow God in the Way of Jesus must raise our voice on behalf of people who, largely, are voiceless in this federal budget process. Here’s what I wrote:
As a parent, I know how important it is to be able to feed our two children. As an American, I want all people to be able to feed themselves and their children. As a Christian, I am called to help make that hope a reality. So I stand with those resisting budget cuts that undermine the lives, dignity, and rights of poor and vulnerable people.
How will you add your voice?
