The Presidential Inaugural Committee have chosen who will participate in the Inaugural services. It look like the committee was trying to include ALL. I must say it does my heart good to see that President-elect Obama's friend Rev. Otis Moss Jr were invited to take part. I see the pick of Rev. Otis Moss Jr as representing The Old Black Church of years ago. Also it says that Obama recognize what role The Old Black church played in shaping his life. Retired Rev. Otis Moss Jr., who was senior pastor of emeritus at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland, is one of several prominent clergymen and women who will participate in a National Prayer Service in Washington, D.C., next Wednesday, the day after Barack Obama's presidential inauguration. The service is a tradition that dates back to the inauguration of George Washington, according to the Presidential Inaugural Committee, and will be held at the National Cathedral. With scripture readings, prayers, hymns and blessings delivered by faith leaders from across the United States, the service marks the close of inauguration festivities. Moss will provide the opening prayer. Other clergy with roles in the service will come from additional Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu faiths. Admission is by invitation only. Bishop T.D. Jakes, the Dallas mega church pastor, will preach at the private church service that President-elect Barack Obama will attend the morning of his inaugural, The Associated Press has learned.
