Religion & Ethics Newsweekly: John Unger
PBS features West Virginia State Senator John Unger, who also serves as a pastor at three churches in the Eastern Panhandle. Unger says being a pastor allows him to better understand "the human condition" and helps him become a better legislator.
BOB ABERNETHY, correspondent: John Unger is a 45-year-old West Virginia native who has pastored St. John Lutheran Church in Harper's Ferry for four-and-a-half years. He says when he started the congregation consisted of six people and a dog. Today, about fifty people worship here on the average Sunday.
