Best Political Pastor - 2009
The Rev. Stan Smith, another progressive Christian, told me about this article as well as your sweet comments, Mike! Thank you for humbly mentioning me and my work -I appreciate it so much. However, the truth is, you are well deserved as someone who leads us in our county well and perhaps one of the pastors I most respect. Thank you for following in Jesus' footsteps!
Let's hope this inspires more pastors to step out on the side of justice!
Rev. Sarah HalversonFairview Community Church, Costa Mesa
While I appreciate the kind press and supportive words of the OCWEEKLY, there are many other ministers in Orange County with a spiritual conscience that take courageous stands for social justice. My vote for "Most Political Pastor" would be Rev. Sarah Halverson, Pastor of the Fairview Community Church in Costa Mesa. Mike Holland, PastorChurch of the Foothills UCC & DOCSanta Ana, Ca
