Pope Francis and Kenneth Copeland Exchange Greetings
In February, Pope Francis sent video greetings to a pastors convention hosted by charismatic preacher Kenneth Copeland in which he expressed his yearning for Christian unity. Dale Coulter points out the significance of a pope who identifies closely with Saint Francis’ life of poverty reaching out in this way to a televangelist associated with prosperity theology.
