Sen. Butler and Lt. Governor Cagle Welcomed Rev. Sharon Junn as Chaplain of the Day

ATLANTA (February 29, 2012) – Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Sen. Gloria Butler (D-Stone Mountain) welcomed Reverend Sharon Junn to serve as the Chaplain of the Day on February 28, 2012 in the State Senate.

“It was my privilege to host Pastor Junn in the Senate Chamber,” said Sen. Butler.  “Her message of unity and working together as one are important virtues to take with us as we move closer toward Crossover Day next week.”

“It was an honor to welcome Rev. Junn to the Senate.  “The tradition of the Senate to begin each day with a devotional and prayer allows us to set our mind and heart in the right direction as we make important policy decisions.  As we face daunting challenges during this session, I’m confident that the Senate will answer the call to serve.  Today, Rev. Junn encouraged Senators and inspired each of us to lead our state in the right direction,” said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle.

Junn migrated to the United States from South Korea in 1992.  After meeting with missionaries, Junn decided to follow their example and become a pastor.  She received her master’s of divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Ga. and is now a resident pastor at Central Presbyterian Church in Atlanta.
