And wasn't it a beautiful thing?
I thought, "Rick Warren, that is a SPEECH. Not a prayer." ;)
I enjoyed the "...when yellow can become mellow" but what made me sniffly was the "...That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. And Amen. And Amen."Seriously. Amen.P.S. I avoided Rick Warren.
i agree- that benediction was just awesome.
I'd liked it too...but I sure hope we aren't saying that praying should be competitive. I saw nothing wrong with Rick Warren's prayer either. I don't think anyone got schooled or that the intent of the guy giving the benediction was to school anyone.
Anonymous, you make an excellent point. Praying, even at a civic/press occasion like this, can't descend into a competition. I hadn't thought about that, but you're right. It also can't be critiqued like it's literature or even a presidential speech - not by me, at least, since I believe that prayer is talking to God. Even with notes and a mic.And I think it's safe to assume - that 'showing up' R. Warren never even crossed Dr. Lowery's mind. Or Pastor Warren's, for that matter. I have to assume, from what I read, that they are both sincere, humble men. Thanks for commenting.
Dang! I like your husband:)"Lift every voice and sing....."
PS Rick who?Just kiddin.....
