Shining Our Lights Toward Congress
Services and support to our nation’s most vulnerable people are at risk as Congress continues to wrangle over how to resolve the budget impasse. The daily prayer gathering is an inspiration from Ecumenical Advocacy Days. Faith-based organizations take turns leading the short program.
Ecumenical Advocacy Days Director Douglas Grace relishes the fellowship with other faith-based groups working for social justice. He says they’ll keep praying together until Congress passes a budget.
As drops of perspiration dribbled down their skin from the brutal heat wave, Bread for the World staff bowed their heads to ask for God’s protection for the most vulnerable. Before parting to tackle the afternoon’s challenges, they sang: “This little light of ours, we’re gonna let it shine.”
Let’s flip the switch together.
