President’s Eulogy

President Obama delivering eulogy

In his eulogy for Clementa Pinckney, Obama called on the nation “to emulate the grace that he showed in his work and that the people of South Carolina displayed after nine worshipers were massacred at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.”

President Obama reflected on the openness of the man and his community to the stranger, on the history that rises and swells around the community, on the change wrought by these nine deaths.  Rev Pinckney had an Open Heart that was filled with Grace.  Grace that is not earned, but given…

The President ended by singing Amazing Grace, how sweet the… inviting God’s Grace on us all.

Here is the video of the eulogy:
