article imageShould Obama Carry An Umbrella On August 28?

By KJ Mullins     Aug 7, 2008 in Politics
Stuart Shepherd, a video producer for Focus on the Family made a prayer request for rain on August 28. Seems Shepherd was joking around a little when hoping for Obama to be rained out during a planned speech.
Shepherd says he was half joking when requesting the prayers for rain to fall when Barack Obama makes his outdoor speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
The request was made in Shepherd's latest Internet video for the Christian group.
Obama will be ending the DNC with an outdoor acceptance speech at Invesco Field at Mile High.
"Sure it's boyish humor perhaps to wish for something like that, but at the same time it's something people feel very strongly about. They're concerned about where he would take the nation," said Shepard.
Shepherd has a weekly spot, Stop Light, on the Focus on the Family Action web site.
