Tony Blair To Visit OC's Saddleback Church For Civil Forum

LAKE FOREST (CBS) — Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will visit Saddleback Church Sunday to discuss his work in the Middle East peace process during Rick Warren's Civil Forum on Peace in a Globalized Economy.

Blair is also expected to talk about the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, which seeks to promote respect and understanding between the world's prominent religions.

"We are honored to have Tony Blair join us for this civil forum," Warren said. "I am looking forward to engaging in discussion regarding how government, business and the church can continue to help efforts toward peace."

Warren seeks to rally millions of Christians globally to help the poor and sick as well as improve education, according to a statement.
