Barack Obama – Growing Up and Community Organizer

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 KJV
Barry was a man with a very interesting background. Barry seemed to be searching for something and that something seemed to be an identity. Our Bible character, much like many of the other “religious” Bible characters before him, had to be reminded by God that a mind wasn’t the only thing that needed to be touched by “religion.” If your heart isn’t in the right place, all the rules in the world aren’t going to help you get closer to God. Life had brought me to this moment. All the intersections I had crossed lead to where I stood at that moment.

Benjamin Harrison – His First Wife Caroline

“And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Mark 15:34 KJV
As the crowds gathered around him I’m sure he felt all alone. No one could take his pain away from him. No one could understand. No matter how large the crowd in the room, his loneliness would never leave him. There on another branch was a single dove. That single dove seemed to be looking back at the four birds. They weren’t cheering him on, they were crying because they knew his life was at an end. Then just as He was about to die, God abandoned him, too.

James Buchanan – The Bachelor President

“And as he passed by, he saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.” Mark 2:14 KJV
Her father had heard much about the tainted Young Buck and he was not very happy that his daughter was even associating with him. When Levi decided to become a tax collector, I’m sure his father, his family and all his friends’ hearts sank. I got up from my seat and snuck up behind him. Using his radio jingle I asked him if he could help me with my plumbing problem.

John Adams – The Unselfish Delegate and the Committee of Five

“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8 KJV
He suggested that this young Virginian, Thomas Jefferson, be on that committee of five. But who else should be on that committee? It would probably be impossible for the Bible to mention all the characters that made a story happen. We basically know nothing about Alon, except for the fact he will play a very minor role in our story. It was my first summer as a plumber’s helper.

“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8 KJV
On the fourth of July in 1872, John would have to skip the 4th of July celebrations in Plymouth Notch. You see, John’s son would be born on that day. It’s called a sukkah and it is used to celebrate the Festival of Sukkot. She then said, with the biggest smile on her face, “You know I don’t like surprises.”
