Adventists at the Obama Inauguration


(system) #1

I know that with President Obama in place, we're all avoiding simple sectarianism and parochialism, but it should be noted that two Adventists participated formally in the Inaugural events.

Barry Black prayed for the Congressional dinner which immediately followed the Inauguration. It was shown live on TV.

Wintley Phipps sang "Amazing Grace" for the interfaith prayer service which President Obama attended at the National Cathedral.

Did you watch it? Were you there? What did you think of it all?
