Joshua Genig on President Obama: Pastor-in-Chief :
I am not political. At least I try not to be. I do not spend time, nor do I enjoy, discussing national politics. Some do. Some pastors get so bogged down in such things that they never really get on to the business of caring for souls. Blogging about this colleague or that colleague, this president or that president, is not, in my estimation, pastoral care.
However, I have found myself over the past few weeks rather energized for a political cause, in part because it has so profoundly affected some of my dearest friends in the Church of Rome and, even if to a lesser degree, it has also affected my own Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
