Christian Century on Barack Obama's church.
Do read Jason Byassee's article about Trinity United Church of Christ, the "Africentric" South Chicago congregation where Sen. Barack Obama is a member. (Bonus trivia: Oprah Winfrey is a member, too.) It's a rich and nuanced piece about the contemporary black church. The same issue also features Gary Dorrien's profile of Obama, in the guise of a review of The Audacity of Hope.
Update: Sean calls attention to the fact that Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor, is the featured presenter at the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association meeting in Portland, Oregon, on Tuesday, June 19.
