Dr. Lee and a congregation of more than 3,000 worshippers at First Redeemer welcomed former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to the morning worship service Sunday.
Win-or-go-home time is fast approaching for the former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich. A decisive leader in the race for the Republican nomination for president just one month ago, Gingrich now finds himself in third place behind former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum in most national polls. Of more immediate concern, however, is a fight for survival in Georgia where the latest Rasmussen poll shows his once double-digit lead over Santorum has now shrunk to just five percentage points. That is particularly troubling since Georgia is at the heart of Gingrich's "Southern Strategy," built on the hope that a successful sweep through southern states on Super Tuesday …
