Today I spoke at the Nat’l Prayer Breakfast in Washington.  During my speech I gave the President a copy of my Bonhoeffer book…  Here’s the article from WORLD. Here’s one from The Baptist Press. Here’s the Catholic News Agency.  And here’s National Review.

My talk begins 35 mins in and ends with me leading the 3,500 assembled in singing “Amazing Grace”.  No kidding.

Guess who snapped this photo below?  None other than VP Joseph P. Biden, who of his own accord very graciously offered to take it for me!  Amazing.  I wonder how many photos there are of U.S. President’s taken by U. S. Vice Presidents?

Right here in Manhattan, my wife, Susanne, runs the MPSC (Midtown Pregnancy Support Center) a non-political, non-profit Christian organization that offers help of all kinds to women (and families) that find themselves in “crisis pregnancies.” The stories one hears from such women can be incredibly moving; but what’s most striking to me is that one never seems to hear these stories — of real women, making real decisions in difficult circumstances — anywhere in the popular culture, neither on tv nor in the so-called main-stream media. Here’s one such story from the online site for First Things.
