Watkins.jpegOne white evangelical male pastor. One black male prophet. One white mainline female priest. Completing the Inaugural Clergy Trifecta of Invocator, Benedictor, and Homilist, the Rev. Sharon E. Watkins, General Minister and President of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), has been chosen by President-elect Obama to deliver the sermon at the National Prayer Service on Wednesday, January 21st at the National Cathedral. She’s the first woman to head her denomination. Hear her preach.
Update: And to kick things off, one white mainline gay bishop. Hey, nobody here but us Protestants.
