Annual Washington Week Events and Prayer Breakfast

Every year the religious institutions of America pray for our nation’s health and welfare. Catholics and Protestants, Evangelicals and Orthodox Christians, Jews and believers from every religion in America come together to invoke blessings and healing upon our nation. You are invited to  join us.
Join us in two weeks, Monday morning at 10 am, October 16th, at 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, and lend your prayers, support and blessings with all of us for our nation to enjoy God’s blessings upon the American people and all of us around the world.
This year we will include words from retiring National co-chair Rev. Owen Owens as he reflects upon our future and our world. We will also thank some of the pioneers of the religious environmental movement. This will include Rabbi Warren Stone for a long career of serving the Jewish committee, including service as chair of the Central Committee of American Rabbis. We will also honor The Rev. Dr, Gerald Durley who once personally walked along with Martin Luther King, plus others who have served as pioneers of the religion and environment movement.
This year our annual award as the 2023 Steward of God’s creation will go to Rev. Richard Cizik for his work as the informal chaplain of some of the US Congress’ Senators and for his efforts in building the Evangelical Partnership for the Common good and his efforts while serving at the national vice president of the National Association of Evangelicals. [see website menu for previous awards]
We will also hear from Dr. Lise Van Susteren MD on the importance of honoring our past leaders and from attorney Danna Smith on why we must avoid the cutting of trees for wood chips as a substitute for fossil fuels.
Additionally we will all be served an elegant breakfast by the staff of the Willard Hotel and hear from other individuals from across America during this national prayer breakfast. You are invited and welcome to attend.
Please freely share this invitation notice with others who may wish to attend. You are all invited. An optional donation for costs is invited at the door.
Yours in service to God’s good earth,

Fred Krueger staff associate and coordinator
