Faith Leaders Arrested in Civil Disobedience Action Against Tax Bill

Faith Leaders Arrested in Civil Disobedience Action Against Tax Bill
Message to Senators: The tax bill is an assault on the poor

On the last day of the liturgical year, on the feast of Saint Andrew, 12 Christians entered the Senate Hart offices to read just a few of the #2000verses in the Bible about the poor and justice. This was our liturgical direct action brought to the Senate door against the horrific tax reform legislation that they are conspiring to pass in the next few days.

I was honored to lead worship with Jim Wallis, Barbara Williams-Skinner, Bob Sabath, Patrick Carolan, Bishop W. Darin Moore, Jeff Hoagland, David Potter, Feriel Ricks, Carole Dortch-Wright, Catherine Griggs, and Joshua (who joined us at the last moment with a wonderful rendition of the Magnificat).

This is what church looks like.

Here is a  short video from today: 3-minute video of arrests & reading

Use it in your churches for the first Sunday of Advent. — Rose Berger (in the purple)
