Obama's church service ends with "Forward" chant http://wapo.st/VgQ1mQ #inaug2013

Sermon uses Obama’s ‘Forward’ theme

Metropolitan AME Church’s Rev. Ronald E. Braxton used President Obama’s campaign theme of “Forward” in his sermon Sunday morning, as the president and his family looked on from the pews.

The scripture for the service was from Exodus — the parting of the Red Sea. Comparing the president and this country to Moses and the children of Israel, Braxton said it was a situation “where forward is the only option.”

Church sings ‘Happy Birthday’ to Michelle Obama

When President Obama and his family arrived at the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church at about 9:45 a.m, the gospel choir was already singing. Obama was introduced by Pastor Ronald E. Braxton, the senior pastor at the church. When first lady Michelle Obama was welcomed by Pastor Marie P. Braxton, the crowd rose and sang “Happy Birthday.” The first lady turned 49 on Thursday.
