Worshiping with the Obamas

My wife and oldest daughter drove to DC yesterday in order to attend the inaugural. I've been worried for some weeks that the trip might be somewhat disappointing given the expected crowd. They do not have tickets to any events, so I figured they would be too far from the festivities to enjoy them.

This morning, however, they attended Nineteenth Street Baptist Church with a family friend (the woman who made our wedding cake in 1991).

As it happens, the service was also attended by the Obama family. As the Obamas were leaving, my wife shook hands with Barack and Michelle Obama, wished the latter a happy birthday, and received a brief and kind blessing from the President-elect.

It will be difficult to top that on the remainder of the trip.

Update: The Post story has video from inside the church Sunday.
