Saturday night Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose Driven Life successfully moderated the first public event between the two candidates for president.

Warren’s premise for hosting the debate is that while he believes in separation between church and state, he does not believe in a separation between faith and politics. After all, he asserts, “faith is just a world view, and everybody has some kind of world view.”

I felt that Warren performed very well in his role as moderator, and appreciated the forum to hear the candidates discuss matters that matter to me.

I encourage you to check out CNN’s full discussion available online.

  1. This debate was discussed in our district’s admin. meeting this morning. Very interesting hearing the discussion ensue in a secular setting… everyone had positive reactions to it though.
