Barack Obama and his family may have found a new church!

President Barack Obama and his family attended a worship service Sunday at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, their third visit to the historic congregation across Lafayette Square from the White House.
According to the Associated Press, Obama, first lady Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia listened to a sermon about how Christianity has consequences.

During the sermon, seminarian Mike Angell told the parishioners that the consequences vary, whether it’s making a hard decision at work or deciding to give more time to God. But he added that they don’t face these consequences alone. “We are given each other as a source of boldness,” he said.
We have each other. We should be able to rely on and support each other without needing to bring a deity into it, however.
