Ministers and legislators came together last week for a crucial meeting of the minds at a Harrisburg event sponsored by the Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN,www.papastors.net) in an effort to restore and maintain America’s religious and constitutional freedoms.
The December 8 event, titled “Preparing the Way,” was part of the Pennsylvania Pastors Network’s “Ministers Together” initiative, which brings together pastors, who are ministers of God in the pulpit, and elected officials, who are ministers of God in the public arena.
“We can’t win a spiritual battle with political strategies,” said Sam Rohrer, President of PPN and the American Pastors Network (APN, www.AmericanPastorsNetwork.net). “Having righteous people in office is not the key. Repentant hearts is the key, which will lead to electing the righteous to office. PPN’s recent ‘Ministers Together’ event was a fantastic opportunity for all of us to come together and reaffirm our similar convictions, duties and commitments.”
Randy Wenger, Chief Counsel for the Pennsylvania Family Institute, shared upcoming legislative initiatives that may threaten Americans’ freedoms, and participants also embarked on a Spiritual Heritage Tour of the Capitol Building, which educated pastors and legislators about the significance of the inscriptions on the walls and floors throughout the building—a reminder of the rich biblical heritage underpinning the civil government of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Pastors Network (PPN, www.papastors.net) encourages pastors to bring together biblical and constitutional principles in their sermons and provides resources to pastors throughout the state.
