Please join Disciples everywhere in congratulating General Minister and President Sharon Watkins in being selected to deliver the sermon at President-Elect Barack Obama’s National Prayer Service on Wednesday, January 21.

You can read that release at: www.disciples.org/default.aspx?tabid=476. You also may be interested in reading the article about Dr. Watkins involvement in the prayer service that appears on page 16 in the first section of the Sunday, January 11 New York Times.
