Columbia mayor draws big crowd for annual prayer breakfast

Mayor Steve Benjamin, fellow Midlands mayors, and around 500 community members gathered on Monday through the midst of government shutdowns to unite as 'One Columbia'. Although the event was predominantly evangelical-based, according to Hal Stevenson, a conservative Republican, "His [Steve Benjamin] campaign or administration theme of `One Columbia' was really on display today because he acknowledged from the podium that he represents the Jews and Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists but he was also willing to share his own personal faith in Jesus Christ.''
