posted on February 7, 2023

Adelle M. Banks of Religion News Service reports, “Speaking to a refashioned National Prayer Breakfast gathered at the Capitol with a new board and in a new location, President Joe Biden encouraged leaders of Congress to find ways to unify despite their political and religious differences.” Biden said, “Differences express infinite creativity of G-d, who is able to see his reflection in countless ways in different people. It’s also an expression of American conviction that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.” The new prayer breakfast at the Capitol where Biden spoke occurred simultaneously with the prayer breakfast run by the Fellowship Foundation, otherwise known as “the Family,” which has been held at the Washington Hilton since the 1980s.
