Rev. Rick Warren to Give Invocation at Obama Inauguration

Check out this MSNBC article which discusses President-elect Barack Obama’s choice of Rev. Richard “Rick” Warren to give the invocation at the inauguration on January 20th. 

The choice is seen as controversial owing to Warren’s oppostion to issues dear to many Obama supporters, such as same sex marriage and abortion rights, but, as the article states, “Warren has also been one of the most prominent evangelical leaders calling for Christians to expand their agenda and confront global problems like poverty, AIDS, climate change and genocide in Darfur.”  

Warren is author of the popular book, The Purpose-driven Life:  What on Earth Am I Here For?, and Greensboro Public Library also has his latest, The Purpose of Christmas.
