I teach confirmation class to middle school students at an Episcopal church in Manhattan. Yesterday, we were discussing the prophets of the Old Testament and asked the kids for examples of prophets. Several of the kids were pretty convinced Senator Obama was a prophet. It took a few minutes to explain that he’s neither a major nor minor prophet but that he’s just a guy running for president.
And, of course, during prayer request time, we had to cover nationalized healthcare. I wish I was kidding…
