I listened with a group of friends yesterday as Rick Warren prayed at the inauguration. It didn’t take too long, in my opinion, before his words no longer sounded like a prayer to God (whichever God you may choose…) but more like a speech.
I couldn’t put my finger exactly on what was bothering me about the speech….er, I mean, prayer. In some ways, I felt better after reading this post and many of the comments…I was not the only on who was confused. Some readers of the post were troubled, others were encouraged.
I’m curious how others heard his words. Thoughts?
