Today's DNC worship rally.
I interrupt my work day to call your attention to a DNC-related religion opportunity this afternoon. Here's the notice I just received, with value-added links!
Today at 4:30 p.m. UUA president William Sinkford will participate in the "Let Justice Roll" interfaith worship service and rally at Old South Church in Copley Square (corner of Dartmouth and Boylston). Sponsored by the National Council of Churches and the United Church of Christ, the event will bring together religious leaders from across the nation to focus attention on the poverty and hunger afflicting so many people in the United States and around the world, to encourage voter registration and participation, and to seek commitments from local and state public officials and delegates to the Democratic National Convention that they will work to shape public policies to help meet the needs of the poor.
The main preacher at the service is the Rev. James Forbes of Riverside Church in New York City. Though John Kerry was not able to accept an invitation to attend, he has informed the planners that he will be sending a representative from the Democratic National Committee. The public is invited to attend the service.
Rev. Sinkford will also participate in a press conference at Old South prior to the start of the service.
