Report: Hillary Clinton Considering Becoming Preacher
Hillary Clinton reportedly has some interest in becoming a preacher in the United Methodist Church.
According to The Atlantic, the former first lady and Democratic presidential nominee told Bill Shillady, her longtime pastor, she has interest in "sharing her faith."
Shillady revealed Clinton's spiritual ambitions at a recent photo shoot for his new book, “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton.”
The book contains 365 of the more than 600 devotions written for Clinton during the election season, along with personal notes, portions of her speeches and headlines that provide context for that day’s devotion, according to publisher Abingdon Press.
“Given her depth of knowledge of the Bible and her experience of caring for people and loving people, she’d make a great pastor,” Shillady told The Atlantic.
He noted that she likely wouldn't go to seminary or pursue an official position in the Methodist church.
“I think it would be more of … her guest preaching at some point,” he said. “We have a long history of lay preachers in the United Methodist Church.”
Shillady said since the 2016 election, Clinton's "faith is stronger."
"I haven’t noticed anything different, except that I think she is more relaxed than I’ve ever seen her," he said.
