Methodist Pastor Adam Hamilton to Preach at Inaugural National Prayer Service

The Rev. Adam Hamilton, pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas, has been chosen to deliver the sermon at the inaugural national prayer service at the Washington National Cathedral, reports Daniel Burke of Religion News Service. Hamilton, named one of “10 people to watch in America’s spiritual landscape” in 2010, is known for his centrist views, particularly on the issue of gay rights. On gay rights, Hamilton said, “You can be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ and somebody who loves all people and is serious about your faith and a mature Christian, and you can make an argument on either side of that line.”
