I Was A Stranger

I encourage the readers of this blog to view the video, below.  I encourage you, then, to go to the Evangelical Immigration Table website and sign the Evangelical Statement of Principles for Immigration Reform.

You can also read the Post-Election Open Letters sent to President Obama & the Leaders of Congress.

For my Wesleyan readers, you may note that the Rev'd. Dr. JoAnne Lyon, General Superintendent of The Wesleyan Church, and all six General Superintendents of the Church of the Nazarene have signed on to this statement.  Dr. Lyon is also featured in the video.

As President of the Wesleyan-Anglican Society, I have recently signed the statement, as well.

Again, I encourage your support.

Yay for the Church of the Nazarene participating in this. Makes me proud.

You don't have to be labeled an evangelical to sign this.

And, why allow a Richard Land on here? An outright religious right kook.

Indeed, one doesn't have to be an evangelical to agree with it. But, it originated in the "Evangelical community," and expresses the voice of evangelicals.

As for Richard Land: Don't know him or much about him, except that he is the chair of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. - Religious right kook or not, it seems that someone in that position would be one that an "evangelical statement" would reasonabley include. - Perhaps the Southern Baptists should re-consider him? Again, I don't know anything else about him.

Thanks for your comments, John!
