The Mystery of Pelosi’s Favorite Bible Verse: Not in Bible…
Pelosi botches words, suffers face spasms, confuses Dems, GOP…

Nancy Pelosi addressed a gathering of presidents of Christian colleges this week in Washington, where she thanked the evangelical community for its leadership on immigration and refugee policy reform. To this end, the speaker of the House quoted a favorite bit of biblical wisdom in her opening statement: “To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.”
OK, actually, she said, it might not technically be from the Bible. “I can’t find it in the Bible, but I quote it all the time,” Pelosi said as she introduced the quote. “I keep reading and reading the Bible—I know it’s there someplace. It’s supposed to be in Isaiah. I heard a bishop say, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation … ’ ”
To clarify: It is not “there someplace.”
Many Christians in the workforce, over 120 million Americans, desire to know Jesus more deeply and expand our faith lives. Our vision of Jesus has been skewed by the dogma and polity of our religious institutions, the fringe element of religious thoughts, and a decline in the institutional church. Jesus has become less relatable, and the forces of our contemporary society have hidden Jesus away in a dark closet. Jesus & Co. is a non-dogmatic and disruptive voice that retells the purpose and story of Jesus.
Jesus & Co. uses the exact words spoken by Jesus and compelling historical evidence to bring Jesus alive in a very different way. He becomes accessible and real, by connecting His words and the ancient Judean marketplace with inspiring people from the 21st century.
Jesus & Co. is a journey through time and the lives of Jesus and marvelous Christians.
