Pool Report: The First Family Attends Church

We love this! The First Family strolling hand-in-hand as they walk to St. John's Episcopal Church today.
Here are the raw details from White House pool reporter John Stanton of Roll Call.

The first fam left St Johns at 1135, and after a short stroll through Lafayette Park, returned to the White House. The homily was based on the story of Jacobs Ladder and a meditation on finding God in places you would not expect to.

"The First Family were delighted to worship with the St. John's Episcopal Church congregation today as they have in the past, and look forward to visiting again," a White House official said.

St. Johns is an Episcopal Church, which dates back to 1815, and since James Madison every sitting president has worshipped there (www.stjohns-dc.org is their site).

Churches in the DC area the Obamas have attended include: the 19th Street Baptist Church, Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church, Vermont Avenue Baptist Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, the Washington National Cathedral, multiple times at St. John's Episcopal Church, and Evergreen Chapel at Camp David.

Also:  When asked if he (President Obama) would be watching the Women's World Cup Championship POTUS replied, "Absolutely. Go USA!"

The USA plays Japan today in what should be an easy match for the Americans who have been amazing this year, leaving the pitch littered with the broken dreams of their opponents.
