It helps to be friends with the Governor.
Even with that friendship and favor, in the fast-and-fruitful scramble of things, the gathering in this capital city, like so many others, was still thrown together in just a couple days. Thank you Zoie for all your help. And thank you to the small army of pastors and leaders that rearranged their schedules at the last minute. Next time, we'll actually give you some reasonable notice.
We gathered at a store-front church only blocks from the Capitol, where even more folks were able to join us. (Thank you Carrie.) After a short-and-sweet time of worship and exhortation, we walked (with the strong winds, it was more like being blown down the street) to the Statehouse where we prayerwalked throughout and had a special time of worship and prayer right in the Rotunda. (Ralph shot a great video, which I'm gonna try and figure out how to edit/post today in the car.)
During the years where I did a lot of work in Washington DC, I didn't know of another member (Congress or Senate) who garned the same depth of respect from other real-deal believers, whether public figures or behind-the-scenes folks, as (then Senator) Sam Brownback. Proud to know you, brother. May God continue to give you great favor, as you continue to seek Him with your whole heart.
