Today, Rev. Adam Hamilton, pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, delivered the sermon at the Inaugural prayer Service at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. President Barack Obama, and other national leaders, gathered in this traditional service that dates back to George Washington.
You can read the transcript of Adam Hamilton’s sermon on his blog.
Because we are at our conference’s Bishop’s Retreat in Lancaster, PA, we didn’t get to watch the service live this morning. But our conference recorded the sermon so we could watch it later. I read the transcript during our afternoon free time (before our family nap and time in the children’s pool) and couldn’t wait to experince Adam’s delivery of it with our conference clergy family. At the beginning of this evening’s session, we watched the sermon. When it was over, we applauded!
Adam’s sermon was extremely well done. The message was challenging to the leaders of our nation, and to us all. I believe Adam represented Christ—and The United Methodist Church—well.
Thank you, Adam Hamilton. And thanks be to God!
