Where Grace Abounds -- UFT President Randi Weingarten spends National Day of Prayer in Church

Randi Weingarten, the president of one of the most powerful teachers unions in the nation, attended the National Day of Prayer service at Abounding Grace Minsitries last Thursday.

It's not often that evangelicals and public school union chiefs see eye to eye on educational issues, but on this particular evening there was complete agreement that a public school system that educates 1.1 million students a day (a population larger than all but nine U.S. cities) needs "effective, fervent prayer." Thank you Randi Weingarten for attending, and Generation Xcel board member (and Abounding Grace deacon) Evelyn DeJesus for making the introduction.
