With unity we have strength.

The darkness is rising … are we prepared to stand up against it?  Is our country forgetting the laws of God? Will we stand together in unity?

As we watch the character assassination of Judge Kavanaugh its more important than ever to know we as a people are willing to stand up for our values.  I just witnessed what our strength in unity could be like in DC at the Values Voter Summit. Inspirational is the first word that comes to mind of the 2018 Values Voter Summit.

It was not a political rally. It was not hype. Encouragment was based on solid biblical truths. Inspiration was created with strength in kindred spirits.

Highlights for me as an attendee:

Media coverage:

Media from all cultural views were there to add their slant but, for the most part were respectful.

Great Speakers:

Guest speakers included Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson. A full schedule of the three-day event can be seen here.

Pence Defends Kavanaugh

VP Pence was my most personal significant highlight … because I had the opportunity to shake his hand and share a few words.

Christians Must ‘Seize the Day’: Values Voters Tackle Economy, Religious Freedom – and Brett Kavanaugh

Addressing the summit Saturday, VP Mike Pence weighed in on the allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Defending the judge, Pence said he has “impeccable credentials and a proven judicial philosophy,” adding that he has established a “strong record of support for limited government, religious liberty and our Second Amendment.”

“He is a conservative who will interpret the Constitution as written,” he continued. “And his record and a career deserves the respect of every member of the United States Senate. But honestly, the way some Democrats have conducted themselves during this process is a disgrace and a disservice to the Senate and the American people.”

Family Research Council Values Voter Summit, Part 1

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and former Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) were among the featured speakers at the annual Values Voter Summit hosted by the Family Research Council and its FRC Action legislative arm. Speakers talked about the intersection of national politics and social conservatism. Many speakers also talked about the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to replace retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. Senator McConnell promised the Senate would confirm the nominee, saying “We’re gonna plow right through it and do our job.” More here.
