Obama’s former pastor will preach a series of sermons at Houston’s Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. What are the chances the church will record those sermons?
Here is what Wheeler Ave Baptist Church says is their mission. Note that social action and civic justice are part of the mission.
We therefore believe that God requires of us a total stewardship of our personal selves, our time, our gifts, and our treasure; our families and any friends we may influence to join us in His holy work; and that He expects that total stewardship to call us to personal piety and to social action. We believe that He wants to use us in sanctuary and in market-place, to preach conversion and civic justice, as church members and as professionals or students or homemakers, as total servants bringing a total message to the total human condition. We believe that we are privileged to be partners with God in the redeeming of the damaged human race and the bruised universe.
