Off the Mall, churches strategize, serve on Inauguration Day

As crowds neared the Capitol for the swearing-in of President Donald Trump on Friday (Jan. 20), two churches within miles of the National Mall did more than watch: one strategized, the other served.
“Help us to do deep interrogation of the things we have believed that led to this moment,” prayed Lisa Sharon Harper, chief church engagement officer of Sojourners. “And so, God, I pray that you will give us strength, strength to resist.”
