Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has joined nearly 80 religious leaders in an open draft letter addressed to the Democratic and Republican nominees for the presidency.
“We are leaders of Christian communions, organizations and schools who care deeply about hunger and poverty, and we are praying for a president who shares that concern. We write to request a meeting with you to discuss your plans for offering help and opportunity to hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world,” says the draft letter.
“Our churches and organizations are deeply engaged with many of God’s children who work hard every day, but nonetheless struggle to make ends meet. Our own experience of God’s mercy and compassion in Jesus Christ moves us to engage in God’s work of overcoming human misery.”
