I watched John McCain and Barack Obama last night on CNN's forum from Columbia University in New York. I thought they both did an excellent job of answering questions and appearing as human beings. Maybe this was because they were behaving on the seventh anniversary of the September 11 attack. Quite frankly I am frustrated by both parties. I am also frustrated by Christian leaders who I thought were trying to be New Kinds of Christian Leaders who would stay above partisan politics so that they would be free to represent first and foremost God's Kingdom Agenda and free to speak prophetically into both parties. There are third ways that rise above partisan politics.
I found this You Tube Video of Donald Miller (who has lost a lot of weight since I last saw him when we were both speaking at last years Willow Creek Youth Ministry Conference). Donald Miller was invited to pray and give a benediction at the Democratic National Conference. I think he did an amazing job, it is worth watching.
