Carter invited Buttigieg to read scripture, but so far I have not seen anything on the what specific passage he asked the South Bend mayor to read.
Buttigieg showed-up unannounced. Carter, perhaps in an attempt to avoid playing favorites, told the members of the class that Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar, both Democratic presidential candidates, have also visited his class.

Frankly, I am not a fan of this. As I have said multiple times at this blog in the context of conservative evangelical political activity, I don’t like bringing politics into the church in this way. Call me a skeptic, but this move by Buttigieg looks like an attempt to win the support of progressive Christians.
