Talking about health care reform in White Plains

On Saturday, I spoke to a group of about forty members of the Calvary Baptist Church in White Plains as part of their annual Christian Education Retreat. The members were very interested and engaged and they asked many thoughtful questions about health care reform.

My sense was that they wanted to be informed about this issue so that could make up their minds about whether to support the push for health care reform and I do believe by the end of the session most people were very supportive of reform efforts.

On another note, I think churches or other faith-based organizations' core values are very much in line with most of those of health care reform (i.e. health care for all, etc) and can be very effective venues in terms of spreading the word about health care reform to their members and other groups.
