Submitted By Allison Bormel

U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell (CA-15) welcomed Bishop Jerry W. Macklin on September 19, 2013 to the U.S. Capitol to serve as guest chaplain and deliver the opening prayer on the House Floor. Bishop Macklin is the leader of Glad Tidings Church in Hayward, where he has served as Bishop since 1978.

ÒIt is one of the great privileges of being a Member of Congress to invite a pastoral leader from your community to deliver the opening prayer, and I am honored to welcome Bishop Macklin to the House of Representatives today,Ó said Rep. Swalwell. ÒBishop Macklin is a true community leader, and his good work goes well beyond the pulpit. He is a pillar of support to his members and under his leadership the church provides food, affordable housing, health care, and other resources to community members in need.Ó
