Rick Warren's much-anticipated civil forum
Earlier I shared information about the Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion being hosted on Saturday by Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church in California.
The forum is to feature presumptive presidential nominees Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama and Warren, Saddleback’s pastor and best-selling author of “The Purpose-Driven Life” will be moderator for the event.
I learned that Saddleback will show the forum live via its Web site at www.saddleback.com.
Since that first posting, I’ve received numerous e-mails from various religious groups and organizations featuring commentary about the upcoming forum and more information.
Today the Oklahoma City-based International Pentecostal Holiness Church Ministries sent me a news release that says that the forum will also be broadcast live on CNN and Fox News.
According to the IPHC news release, Warren has said the two-hour event will be held in a non-debate format and will be open to all media.
Both candidates have requested that questions be posed exclusively by Warren, instead of a panel or members of the audience. Each will converse separately with Warren for about one hour.
Warren is to deliver a special sermon on Sunday entitled “Making Up Your Mind: Questions to Consider before the Election,” which will be streamed live on the church Web site and made available for use in small group discussions within churches across the country.
Incidentally, the IHPC reports that about 6,500 tickets to the forum will be allotted for seating in six different venues throughout the Saddleback campus.
