Have you ever wondered who our congressional leaders are? What do they really believe, beyond what we know of their policies? Who are the people making the decisions for the lives of citizens in America?
“Soul Talk on the Hill,” a series hosted by Sister Jenna takes us into the halls of the U.S. Capitol as she engages in heart-to-heart conversations with some of our Congressional leaders. The series takes us where no policy hearing ever has. Together, we will discover the heart and minds of the men and women of the United States Congress.
Are we united in some way? Do we share a common story and wish for humanity? You will be amazed by the profoundness that some of our leaders’ responses to these questions entail. If more people were exposed to this series connecting these members of Congress to the average individual, Capitol Hill will no longer be a distant mystery to the American public.
The future of the United States Congress is progressive and hopeful. The 116th United States Congress, which just convened on January 3, 2019, includes a record number of women, minorities and first-time candidates who ran for office. Women make up nearly a quarter of its voting membership – the highest percentage in U.S. history. These times are a big wakeup call and they require each and every one of us to develop strength and discerning powers so that we can make choices that benefit the country as a whole.
