Eileen Flynn has written an excellent column in the Austin American-Statesman discussing the misunderstanding of the label “evangelical” and promoting the Texas Freedom Network-sponsored Jim Wallis speaking event at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 13, at First United Methodist in Austin.
Rev. Wallis will also speak with local faith leaders at a rally on the South Steps of the state Capitol at 5 p.m. on Tuesday. The Rise Rally will focus on united people of faith behind issues that the religious right has long ignored, including poverty, hunger and the environment.
