Pastor to the Presidents

Revered Billy Graham's ministry as the Pastor to Presidents is coming to an end according to this News Article. Billy Graham has counseled every President beginning with Dwight Eisenhower, in 1953, but is not in line to mentor new President elect, Obama.

When I mentioned this article to Steven, he said Brian McLaren, has been serving as an advisor to Obama through the presidential campaign and will most likely take over the spot in which Billy Graham had served for the last 55 years.

For those of you who don't know, Brian McLaren, is one of prominent voices in the Emerging Church movement.

I read the Billy Graham article too, but I didn't know about Brian McLaren. I am not surprised really, but what a shame. (I just read one of his books--for research only!--and it was terrible theologically.)

By the way, the new layout is fun!
