Faith-based leaders gather to discuss election, religion’s role

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – More than a dozen faith-based leaders gathered Tuesday morning to discuss the upcoming election and how it plays a role in religion.

It took place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville.

Pastor Bob Hudak said it’s important to learn what he can legally discuss with his congregation and how pending legislation could impact his church.

He said it’s crucial for people to understand how important dialogue can be, “to encourage people to find ways to talk about their fears and to talk about their anger and to talk about ways in which we can connect, because at the end of the day we are called to love.”

Pastor Hudak just started a new program for youth and adults. It allows people to bring news throughout the world to have a diversity of opinions.
