Finding ‘Common Good’ Among Evangelicals In The Political Season. On a recent evening in Houston, under the heavy branches of live oak trees, Doug Pagitt stood before a couple dozen people gathered on blue folding chairs on the Rice University campus.
"You’ve heard it said that to be a true Christian, you must vote like a Republican," he said. "But we are here to be reminded that just ain’t so."
You have heard it said, ‘America First,’ but we are here to be reminded to ‘seek first the Kingdom of God,’ on behalf of all those everywhere in the world.
Pagitt, 52, describes himself as a progressive evangelical. He pastors a church in Minneapolis and has been traveling the country by bus, preaching a message that juxtaposes Trump campaign slogans against quotes from the Bible.

It’s July 2018, and in the lead-up to the United States midterms, he’s touring across 15 states and 31 towns with a clear message: let’s "barnstorm the country to change Congress".
His main aim is to engage religious voters — particularly those who have "reflexively voted for Republicans in the past", as he puts it in one video.
