Obama Hears Pastor's Advice Ahead Of Swearing-In

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A pastor used a morning church service to counsel President Barack Obama to use his power for the benefit of others.
    
That was part of the sermon delivered Monday morning at St. John's Episcopal Church across from the White House. The president attended with his family before taking the oath of office for his second term.
    
Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga., delivered the sermon. He asked what one should do when they realize they are the most powerful person in the room.
    
The answer, Stanley said? Leverage that power for others.
    
To the president, Stanley said:  "Mr. President you have an awfully big room."
