Some 4,000 pastors nationwide signed an open letter to Congress asking that social programs that help the poor and the marginalized not be cut during the final budget negotiations. The pastors point out that real people will be hurt by these cuts, which are usually discussed in DC as if they were mere line items in a budget. The letter is powerful and if your pastor has not signed it, urge him to do so.
