Obama’s Chief Speechwriter is 27?


If it wasn’t hard enough dealing with Jonathan Edwards becoming a pastor at 20, David Sessions (the editor of Patrol Magazine, a favorite) being younger than 25, Matt Chandler becoming senior pastor of the Village Church when he was 28 (if I remember correctly) and John Calvin writing the Institutes of the Christian Religion when he was 27, I now have to deal with the fact, that Obama’s Chief Speechwriter, Jon Favreau – the one working on the Inaugural Address as I write – is a whopping 27.  I mean, the guy who helps the most eloquent President in generations be more, well, eloquenter, is the same one who used his Blackberry to send a victory Email to a friend on election night with the subject line, “Dude“.  I already want to take over the world as a 23-year, and hearing about guys like this does not help.

Oh well, I guess I can always remember N.T. Wright didn’t publish anything until he was in his 50s.

Well, I’m back to working on my three non-fiction books, one novella, one book of poetry, four albums, three articles, two plays, nine unfinished sermons, and eleven blogs – all in progress.  Really.  But while I do that, here are some really interesting links about this guy.  The next four years are going to be so totally awesomely articulate, dude.
