Obama’s New Church

UPDATE: Time Magazine updates the story, reporting that the Obamas are still in the process of searching for a church. (HT: Justin Taylor


Four things on earth are small, but they are exceedingly wise: the ants are a people not strong, yet they provide their food in the summer; the rock badgers are a people not mighty, yet they make their homes in the cliffs; the locusts have no king, yet all of them march in rank; the lizard you can take in your hands, yet it is in kings’ palaces.–Proverbs 30:24-28

President Obama has chosen to make Evergreen Chapel in Camp David his new place of worship.  I doubt that theology played much of a role in this decision, but I applaud the President’s evident concern to worship in a place where he will not become a spectacle and a distraction to others. 

The irony of this decision is that Obama is now sitting under the preaching ministry of chaplain Carey Cash, a graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  I know nothing about Rev. Cash (other than what is explained in the link), but I find it highly ironic that President Obama now has a Southern Baptist pastor. 

I pray that Rev. Cash preaches the true gospel to the President, because I have a deep suspicion that Obama probably never heard it from his former pastor.

  1. Joe Says:

    One thing for sure – Lt. Cash preaches the Gospel. He published a book abut his experiences in Iraq – “A Table in the Presence” – definitely worth a read.

    You’ll get some insights into the man and what he stands for.
