Thoughts on Obama and Warren

In light of the Pope controversy yesterday and it being Christmas Eve today, I wanted to link you all to a friend of mine, Scot McKnight, who wrote a brilliant post about Obama’s choice to have Rick Warren give the invocation. His post is by far and away the most level-headed, well thoughtout commentary I’ve seen. Be blessed by his words and insights. You can read his post here.

Have a Merry Christmas.

Much love.
