As Yahoo News first reported on Monday, a coalition of evangelicals leaders are funding ads on Christian radio in the battleground states of Florida and Colorado that urge listeners to support comprehensive immigration reform.
Focus on the Family President Jim Daly has signed onto a document embracing immigration reform, joining more than 100 evangelical leaders in saying that illegal immigrants should be given an opportunity to become citizens. The coalition will run ads on Christian radio stations in the battleground states of Florida and Colorado encouraging people to welcome immigrants.
During Wild Goose’s debut last year, Jim Wallis, T-Bone Burnett, Phyllis Tickle, Vincent Harding, Over the Rhine, Christian Peacemaker Teams, Brian McLaren, Peggy & Tony Campolo, Inter-varsity Press, Restoring Eden, Michelle Shocked, William Barber, Jim Forbes, Gabriel Salguero, Paul Fromberg, Lynne Hybels and 1700 others met at the intersection of justice, spirituality, music and art. They sang, learned, taught, argued, prayed, ate, danced and imagined a new world.
