From a Church on a Hill to Capitol Hill

Fresh from preaching at West Broadway Baptist Church in Lenoir City, Dr. Russell Moore will be testifying before a Senate Committee on global warming on Thursday.   Denny Burk writes:

She’s not a pugilist, but her name is Barbara Boxer. And Dr. Russell Moore will be testifying before her Senate committee this Thursday morning, 10:00 AM ET, June 7 (see full schedule).

The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works will be holding hearings this week entitled “An Examination of the Views of Religious Organizations Regarding Global Warming.” Dr. Moore will testify among a constellation of religious illuminati from all sides of the theological spectrum. In fact, the first person scheduled to testify is Katherine Jefforts Schori, the controversial Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.

I don’t know where Moore is on the global warming question, but my hunch is that he will probably be somewhere to the right of Schori and Boxer. In fact, when she hears Dr. Moore’s testimony, Boxer may turn out to be a pugilist after all.

Dr. Moore has his work cut out for him, and we should all be praying for him as we tune in to C-SPAN this Thursday morning.
