Michelle Obama Cites Jesus as Model for Citizenship
By Devin Dwyer | YahooNews
First lady Michelle Obama Thursday offered a rare public reflection on her religious faith, telling a conference of the African Methodist Episcopal church that the life of Jesus Christ is a model for democratic organizing.
"Itís kind of like church," Obama said. "Our faith journey isnít just about showing up on Sunday for a good sermon and good music and a good meal. Itís about what we do Monday through Saturday as well, especially in those quiet moments, when the spotlightís not on us, and weíre making those daily choices about how to live our lives.
"We see that in the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus didnít limit his ministry to the four walls of the church," she said. "He was out there fighting injustice and speaking truth to power every single day. He was out there spreading a message of grace and redemption to the least, the last, and the lost. And our charge is to find Him everywhere, every day by how we live our lives."
Obama, who is not a regular churchgoer, said citizenship like the practice of faith is "not a once-a-week kind of deal."
"Democracy is also an everyday activity," she said. "And being an engaged citizen should once again be a daily part of our lives."
