Tomorrow morning, I will be a part of a 65+ other Baptist pastors on a “Goodwill” delegation to the White House. Our group which includes such cool pastors as those from this church, and this church and this church among many others from all over the country. Together, we will meet with senior White House staffers to discuss issues we see facing the those we serve in our congregations and other ministries.
According to organizers, this is the agenda: “We will get to express concerns, ask questions, speak morally about the budget, taxation, immigration, health care, war, criminal justice, the environment and other issues. We will get to share what concerns us as congregational leaders, what’s on our hearts as moral leaders, what community needs are pressing, what our churches do that works to advance the common good. We will also get to hear how administration officials see issues, how they explain their purposes and goals of policies.”
So, on behalf of you, my blogosphere community, what would you want to ask the White House Staff if you could? I’ll be happy to take your questions with me and report back. What fun it is to live in Washington, D.C.!
