Unfinished business awaiting action in 2014


I want to highlight some of my hopes for the New Year in areas of government and the church. Many of these hopes represent topics which we are likely to be talking about throughout much of 2014.

The agreement resolves budget issues for two years and provides an opportunity to move on and address other pressing matters.
