Another day...

...another article on evangelicals. One might think there's something happening here.
Today MSNBC reports on the fact that national evangelical leaders have become aware that
evangelicals have become too closely identified with conservative political activism, at the expense of attracting new followers

I think this is great recognition on the evangelicals' part and a step in the right direction. One organization cited is the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) who have taken a move towards the forefront of this nation's evangelical movement. I personally think that a true evangelical movement is not one of politics but of like hearts and it is heartening to see some in national leadership agree.
The article discusses NAE's adoption of the document An Evangelical Call to Civic Responsibility. This is not a new document (from just pre-election in October 2004), but one which I think does a great job of outlining a Christian's responsibility in today's America.
