Texas Impact's Weekly Witness

Sep 8, 2023

We saw that y'all loved the first two faith leader panels so much that today we are bringing you the third and final installment. If you missed the first two–first, you should go back and listen to them. These panels of religious leaders were part of Texas Impact’s three Houston Faith Votes kick-off events, a partnership between local congregations and organizations in Houston working to increase civic engagement and voting, but the material from these conversations isn’t Houston-specific. Hopefully they inspire all of us to engage our congregations in civic engagement work, and specifically to mobilize our congregations and communities to participate in every election. Spoiler–Texas Impact has tools for you to do that.

Here to inspire you to do that are the panelists from the August 27 faith leaders panel at Servants of Christ UMC: 

Bishop Cynthia Harvey Bishop of the Texas Annual Conference of the UMC

Rev. Harvey Clemons Jr., Senior Pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church

Rabbi Josh Fixler Associate Rabbi of Congregation Emanu El

And Rev. Victor Thomas Dean of the East Harris Convocation and Rector of St. James Episcopal Church
