Politics, ugh!

Bob Paulson wrote this about the Republican National Convention this week, and I gotta tell ya that if an outpouring happened at either convention I'd be inclined to vote for every last one of 'em. Here's Bob's view as reported in Charisma News.

Tuesday night’s benediction was given by the Reverend Sammy Rodriguez, an ordained Assemblies of God minister and president of The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, which is described as “America’s largest Hispanic Christian Organization, with 40,118 member churches.” Rodriguez serves on the boards of directors for Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, the National Association of Evangelicals and Christianity Today.

Rodriguez prayed that in the midst of moral relativism and spiritual apathy, America would receive a fresh outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit. ...“Let Your Spirit move us, reconciling sanctification with service, holiness with humility, the image of God with the habits of Christ, righteousness with justice, and Billy Graham’s message with Martin Luther King’s dream—a dream expressed so eloquently by him on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on this very day nearly 50 years ago.”

He concluded the prayer, saying that "we gather here in Tampa, empowered by Your Spirit, believing that God is not done with America, and America is not done with God."
