More on Obama and faith

/ 17 March 2008

TheCorner has a nice round-up of links and video having to do with the controversy surrounding the Rev. Wright. I frankly think it’s fascinating how interested people are — and have to admit, much of Rev. Wright’s denunciation of racism and imperialism resonates with me. Prophetic speech is never easy to hear, and much that Jesus calls us to is particularly hard for white middle class Americans to encounter. It’s important to remember, in the midst of all this controversy, however, that neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton is the messiah. Ultimately it’s GOD to whom we must turn, and God’s call we must heed. Here in the midst of Holy Week, let’s keep our eyes, our ears, our hearts and our minds open to listening.
