Ecumenical group decides to sit out presidential race
Christian Churches Together
Feb 12, 2008
Christian Churches Together in the USA—the nation’s broadest and newest group devoted to ecumenism—says it will stay out of the presidential campaigns but hopes to convey its top concern—combating domestic poverty—to the president-elect before his or her inauguration.
The fledgling pan-Christian organization, which formally launched in January 2006 in Pasadena, California, held its annual four-day meeting last month in Baltimore. Attendees spent part of that time at Bread for the World offices and touring the sites of S.O.M.E. (So Others May Eat) in Washington, D.C.
