The White House says Michelle and Barack Obama have visited several churches and will see a few more, but haven’t decided on a place to worship.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the first couple visited a couple of churches around the time of his inauguration. Gibbs said they would like to visit some more and “figure out a congregation in the area that they can worship at.”
Gibbs said the president likely misses not having a regular place of worship. In light of economic woes, Gibbs added that Obama probably prays, even if it isn’t in a church.
Obama was a longtime member of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. He resigned from the church and cut ties with its pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Wright caused an uproar with his incendiary comments.
