PICO – Prophetic Clergy Call to Action

Adventist Pastor Ryan Bell co-authored this PICO statement–A Prophetic Clergy Call to Action. Exerpts:

As faith leaders from many religious traditions, we believe that the public debate about economic recovery is not simply about differing political visions, but about competing moral and spiritual values that have profound consequences for our people.

We pledge to teach, preach and organize to unify people of faith around reducing poverty and increasing economic and racial justice. We will challenge our elected leaders from both parties to put the needs of working families, the poor and the common good of our nation ahead of short-term political calculus and special interests.
