Obama, Billy Graham, and Other Interesting Stuff from Around the Web

Now that Billy Graham is 90, and just not up to the rigors of travel, he will not go to Washington to meet with President Elect Obama.  Perhaps have we finally come to the end of the tradition that our president needs some sort of "pastoral" relationship with Rev. Graham, who, by the way, is not anyone's pastor (technically). Yes, I know this is the end of an era and that Dr. Graham, no doubt, saw his role as supportive. But why should every American President from Eisenhower to Bush 43 need to meet with Billy Graham? Especially when a number of presidents had pastors in their home churches. That said, lets hope that Jeremiah Wright stays far, far away from the White House.  Click here: Son: Billy Graham's work with presidents is ending - Yahoo! News

If you are a justified sinner, you can count on an eternity in heaven. Here's a group "rehearsing" for that eternity to come.  Since it was already held on November 1, you'll have to settle for the DVD Click here: Heaven's Rehearsal

And we wonder why the Church of England is dying? When the current Archbishop of Canterbury--who was in New York, not far from ground zero during the chaos of September 11, 2001--tells a frightened New Yorker that "God is useless in times like this" we start to get a sense of why the C of E is in such a sad and rapid state of decline.

The brawling monks are at it again, this time engaging in a smack down right next to Jesus' tomb.  Amazing. Click here: - 2 Clergymen Arrested After Brawl Between Monks Next to Jesus' Tomb Site - International News | News

I missed the rehearsal.

I hope this doesn't mean I am going to end up an usher. :(

I’ve never been clear on how an effete God like Williams’ apparent sub-Calvinism can be of any comfort. But impious language as it may be, perhaps we can give him credit for knowing what it really yields?

Even so, the right reverend wants abortion laws tightened. To listen to American Christians (including Reformed) tell it during these recent elections, I thought that was the litmus test to spiritual health—not Calvinism?

I can't even understand Rowan Williams's Welsh accent,let alone his theology.
A former associate of Billy Graham's attends the same church as me,and on the Sunday that has just passed, i was blessed to have a conversation with him recalling the Graham Crusades of 1959 and 1969 here in Melbourne. he is still involved in assisting other churches in their ministries where necessary.

Add to Billy Graham's departure from the role of "pastor to the President", the news that Mr. Obama sought the advice of Episcopal "Bishop" Gene Robinson of NH three times during the campaign. One can only imagine what promises were made there...

Perhaps we will have an Episcopal, United Methodist, or United Church of Christ minister (perhaps a female minister) at the inauguration? Let's not forget to add a rabbi or imam. How about a homosexual minister? Isn't it time for change? We just might hear about how everyone is a member of God's family and we are all brothers and sisters. Maybe Billy Graham will be present through sattelite to pray with everyone.

I can't stand those ecumenical prayers and services that are televised. I hope they cease.
