Kansas City Pastor Gives Inaugural Sermon In D.C.
Reverend Adam Hamilton, the Senior Pastor at United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, did not believe his assistant when she told him the White House called and asked for his presence at this year's inauguration ceremony. Hamilton gave the sermon at the National Prayer Service, held at the National Cathedral the day after the inauguration ceremonies, which has been a tradition for every inauguration ceremony starting with George Washington.
Hamilton talks with Brian Ellison about the intimidation of speaking in front of our nation's leaders, and also about the process of writing a sermon for influential people.
During Hamilton's trip to Washington D.C., he attended the inauguration ceremony, parade and ball before giving his sermon Tuesday. Listen to the audio below for the full interview and clips of Hamilton's sermon.
