Delivering Truth on Capitol Hill posted by jwatson on Jan 21, 2014
The Evangelism Explosion D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship in Washington, D.C. sponsors a series of monthly informal noontime luncheons for the Capitol Hill community called Politics & Principle. Each luncheon features a modern-day Christian Statesman who shares from a personal perspective the challenges of living out Christian faith in today’s political environment.
The Center has also started an initiative to deliver a Bible to a Congressman on their birthday. Recently the Center presented a John MacArthur Study Bible to Rep. Diane Black (TN). Congresswoman Black was first elected to Congress in 2010. She is driven by her Christian faith and an unwavering commitment to return America to its founding principles of limited government and a strong free enterprise system.
By affording national leaders an opportunity to speak candidly on issues of faith, Politics & Principle has created a unique forum for the Hill community. It is our most widely attended event among congressional staff and one that helps to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our nation’s leaders.
