  1. This is so excellent! I hope you will approach other national church bodies (Episcopal, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, ALL others!) and invite them to join you in signing on to this! Surely it should be mailed to everyone in Congress and the President! Congratulations on starting what I hope will become a national movement. This is the most hopeful document I have read in some time.
