ICYMI: More than 250 Pastors Come to Washington to Stress Moral Urgency of Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C., MAY 2, 2014 — On Tuesday, more than 250 pastors from 25 states traveled to Washington to meet with their members of Congress, pray for reform and urge Congress on behalf of their congregations to vote on reform this year.

“Immigration reform offers the finest opportunity we in the United States have had to put politics aside and do the right thing, for the right reason, at the right time,” said Paige Patterson, president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, as reported by the Christian Post.

Patterson spoke during a press conference that was followed by a worship service and more than 110 Hill meetings with rank-and-file members of Congress, most of them Republican.

The day followed 17 press events featuring local pastors in 13 states over 10 days.
