    This is all good, needed for some time, and appropriate. Some may push back,as I understand has already occurred for pastors who signed the WP proclamation. If that occurs, know you are supported in this fractious time. Continue to make clear this is not party but people for this is a political town and that is the lens too often. Please consider that we might sponsor a refugee family who may come from the Middle East, Christian or not. The need there is huge and we have done relatively nothing as a nation, perhaps made timid by our own internal conflicts over those here illegally and trying to figure that out–still. Anyone who knows Mike Pence ought to appeal to his faith and opportunity to speak truth into a mistake borne of fear and foolishness. The Christian church’s evangelical component has an opportunity here to show the church is not focused on one single issue of faith as so often seems the case or one Supreme Court nominee as the litmus test for faith. This takes courage to persist, but let this be a beginning to right an imbalance in public policy and American culture for here we see those whose “God” is inclusion joining those whose God is in Christ. A rare moment.
