Donald Miller event

Just saw Donald Miller speak at Ohio Wesleyan University. Miller is on the Faith, Family & Values tour endorsing Barack Obama. It was an intimate event, maybe 40 people or so. Miller spent 45 minutes or so discussing his journey from voting-Republican-because-that's-what-conservative-evangelical-Christians-do to now supporting Barack Obama. Don't worry, Miller is still Christian as ever, but guess what, so is Barack. Miller's blog does a nice job of highlighting "Why Obama" especially concerning the hot-button conservative issues such as abortion. And in case you are one of those people who wonder, "Can you be pro-life and support Obama?" well check out this link.

I'm still digesting and processing the event so expect more thoughts and musings later. It was a great way to spend the evening especially 26 days before what could be the most historic election of all time and the greatest progress made by the Civil Rights movement since the efforts of MLK Jr. 
Oh, and many hugs and kisses to my freakin' awesome hubby who escorted my broken butt to the event even though he does not support Obama. It not only meant a lot to me to hear Miller speak, but it was heaven to get out of the house for a couple of hours. Thanks, babe.
