Something strange happened to me today. I was working on a blog entry that will appear here and on Vintage Fellowship's site later today. I was listing the representatives of Jesus in various places and venues when I wanted to list a couple of Christians in Congress. I could only think of one immediately who I would be happy to identify with - and I was shocked by who it was. Senator Barak Obama. Maybe it was because I had recently read this article in CT about him. But I could not think of a Republican in Congress who I would label as an outspoken person of faith with whom I would want to identify. Something has happened - either in me or in our government, I'm not sure which - that when I try to think of a Christian politician I am proud of, I can only come up with a liberal Democrat. Maybe not for everybody, but for me, that's something strange.
