Sen Lindsey Graham at BapCov on "Challenges of Immigration"

Wow:

It just registered with me Challenges of Immigration will be Graham's topic for Friday Morning at the Atlanta Baptist Covenant day about 12 hours after John Grisham speaks on Diversity and 8 hours before Bill Clinton speaks on the SC Primary--insert smilie emoticon for Clinton's topic.

Here is hoping Graham comes to the occasion cognizant and ready to entertaing questions about Ryan Lizza's report in the November New Yorker on how Immigration politics is playing in his Senate Race in south Carolina.
Let us also hope Senator Graham is up on the several stories in NYtimes by Julie Preston as well as the roundtable on booktv.org couple weeks ago on the matter.

Here is a personal invitation to the pastor of the Collinsville Baptist Church, John Morgan, to bring some of his deacons to the Friday morning address by the Republican. Morgan camped out in Atlanta during the Olympics, and made reports to the Ft. Payne Times Journal.
Would be great to see him, as the 25 year pastor of the Baptist church of the most ethnically diverse town in the state, the subject of two statewide documentaries; would be prophetic indeed to have Morgan come back and hold a town hall meeting on the matter with his son Matthew of Yale Div; and Sean McKenzie of nearby Calhoun, Georgia who has held public correspondence with SBC's Richard Land of the ERLC on the matter.
Maybe Willimon could drive up for the conversation; nothing but a short trip from Bham if he could work it out in his schedule and wouldn't put him in bad light with Senator Sessions.
Are immigration politics as timely a matter as abortion politics in NE Alabama, and what does the preacher think, I guess is the question.
