My ad in Politico

Ok, so this isn’t exactly my ad in Politico…but I am one of the 4000+ pastors who signed on to this:

Sojouners writes more about this on their God’s Politics blog today. They also list the ad signers by state.

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.

I join Sojo, Bread for the World and many others from across the denominational spectrum (and the non-denominational one) forming a Circle of Protection with and around the poor.

How will you add your voice?
