Clergy Call 2009: A Prayer For Justice

Here is video of the opening prayer offered by Rev. Dr. Stephen V. Sprinkle from the HRC's Clergy Call, held a few weeks ago in the shadow of the U. S. Capitol. The HRC also provided a bio of Rev. Sprinkle. His passion for justice should resonate with us all.

Rev. Dr. Stephen V. Sprinkle is Director of Field Education and Supervised Ministry, and Associate Professor of Practical Theology at Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, Texas, a post he has held since 1994. An ordained Baptist minister, he is the first open and out gay scholar in the history of the Divinity School, and the first open and out LGBT person to be tenured there. Author of two books, his current project is a book in process on the lives and untimely deaths of 25 LGBT hate crimes murder victims, Unfinished Lives: Reviving the Memory of LGBT Hate Crimes Murder Victims.
