Earlier this afternoon, Ken Carter at Focus Communications sent along an invite to a Sunday-night prayer vigil in front of the Earle Cabell Federal Building and Courthouse -- where, so happens, one week from today former Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill and his missus, Sheila Farrington, finally go to trial in the City Hall corruption case in which four folks have already pleaded guilty. Hill's got quite the all-star lineup ready to take their case to a higher power, among them: Frederick D. Haynes, the senior pastor at Friendship-West Baptist Church and a good friend of Mayor Tom Leppert's; Bryan Carter, senior Pastor at Concord Church, which is where Hill attends services; and S.M. Wright, senior pastor at Peoples Baptist Church.
The vigil's scheduled to last from 6 to 8 p.m., and the press release bears this note of instruction for those considering attending: "Women attending are encouraged to wear white and bring candles."
