On Tuesday, October 15, 70 prominent faith leaders and furloughed government workers marched through key House Offices and prayed with staff members of those offices that our representatives would what is right and reach a deal that would end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling without preconditions. As they marched through the halls of the House Offices, the pilgrimage sang "Amazing Grace," video of which can be seen here.
