Last night Liz and I were invited to a small reception to meet Senator Barack Obama before he spoke at a fund raiser / rally here in Portland. We had a brief moment to talk about our churches and homelessness in Oregon. Around 4,000 people attended the fund raiser.
We also enjoyed meeting Susan Turnbull, vice-chair of the DNC, and her husband Bruce. Susan has not committed to a presidential candidate but attends many events and because she and Bruce were in Oregon she decided to drop by and meet some Oregonians.
