Raphael Warnock on God's Politics Now
I'm delighted to report that Reverend Senator Raphael Warnock will be speaking at Virginia Theological Seminary on November 16 at 7 pm Eastern Time. He's now one year into a six-year term as a U.S. senator, and he continues to serve as senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was pastor) He will be sharing his theology of civic engagement (he holds a PhD in theology) and also speaking about the pressing issues of our day.

When a delegation of church leaders from the Circle of Protection met with him recently, Warnock told us that he instructs the staff who prepare speech notes for him to write "REMAIN THE REV' in big, bold, capital letters at the bottom of each page. "We need to lean into God as we work on issues of politics and policy," he said, "so that the church doesn't so often seem to be the meanest voice in the room."
