Obama hasn't chosen a church

Contrary to reports yesterday, this is on the Religion News Service wire:

White House denies report that Obama won't pick D.C. church

WASHINGTON (RNS) -- The White House on Monday (June 29) denied a report that President Obama has decided to make the Camp David presidential retreat his church home.

"The President and First Family continue to look for a church home," a White House spokesman said Monday. "They have enjoyed worshipping at Camp David and several other congregations over the months, and will choose a church at the time that is best for their family."

Time magazine reported Monday that White House aides had said Obama opted for Camp David's Evergreen Chapel, a nondenominational church, so that he could worship more privately.
