Giving Seculars a Place at the Table
Sally Quinn, Washington Post
There is always a lot of talk at the annual National Prayer Breakfast about coming together. It is hosted by a Republican and a Democrat, this year by Senators Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and Mark Pryor(D-Ark.). There was also a greeting from the U.S. House of Representatives Breakfast Group, which meets once a week for prayer and discussion.
“We work together and we pray together,” said Rep. Louie Gohmert from Texas. Rep. Janice Hahn from California got a laugh when she remarked that it was the one place Speaker Boehner could not remove them. “Only God can do that.” And, she added, “the prayer group gives us a bond that can’t be broken.”
