If you live in Dallas, you are very aware that we are in the midst of a hotly contested race for the Mayor's office. The official ballot was set earlier this week with 13 candidates for us to choose from! Someone quipped that everyone not running for President of the United States is now running for mayor of Dallas.
Question: If you live here and have been listening, how much have you heard from the candidates about the challenges facing our low-income citizens?
Have you heard any candidate place the issues associated with poverty at the front and center of his campaign?
Well, this year at our 12th Annual Urban Ministries Prayer Breakfast, Central Dallas Ministries will host what we are calling "Forum for the Future."
We have invited the top seven mayoral candidates to join us to answer questions related to our agenda, with a special focus on poverty and the low-income neighborhoods of Dallas.
We will also be hearing from the community and our guests. Then, we will spend time in prayer for our city and its people.
It promises to be quite a morning!

I hope you will join us.
