Hillary Clinton pictured rocking 'agbada' as new reports say she now wants to be a preacher for Christ

Hillary-Bill-Clinton
Former US Secretary of State and 2016 Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, was pictured with her husband ex-president, Bill Clinton.

The former First Lady is rocking an outfit that look much like agbada and Nigerians on social media are already debating if she nailed it.

Meanwhile, according to reports, the once-sure-thing the White House candidate is back on the campaign trail, this time on behalf of Jesus Christ.

Hillary, they say, spent years holding back her faith from public view; she avoided imposing the joy of Christ on the assembled. But secretly, she and God were on solid terms. Never mind the public spectacle of her explaining to religious Americans that their “deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.” This was a woman hiding her light under a bushel.

A Duke Divinity School alum who served as her spiritual adviser during the 2016 presidential campaign, Rev. Bill Shillady,  says Mrs Clinton would be powerful in the pulpit.

“I think she would be a terrific preacher,” said the Rev. Shillady, who has been a friend and a pastor to the Clinton family for 15 years. “She knows her Bible, and she loves people and she loves God.”

Shillady met Mrs Clinton in 2002 at a memorial service for 9/11 victims in New York. She was a New York senator at the time and Shillady was pastor of Park Avenue United Methodist Church on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.



Beginning April 6, 2015, Shillady would start each day by looking at news headlines and finding a Bible verse appropriate to what was happening in the world or in Clinton’s life. He would write a short meditation on the verse, offer a prayer and email the devotional to Clinton by 5 a.m.

“She has said it was the first thing she read every day, and it helped to center her that day,” Shillady said.

“It helped her to stay focused on the values that were important to her, and have been since she grew up, in her Methodist faith: justice and dignity, compassion and love.”

Shillady said Clinton would respond to the messages if she especially liked a scripture passage or a devotional.

When Clinton lost to Donald J. Trump, she quoted a verse from Galatians that Shillady said he had sent her a few weeks before. “Let us not grow weary in doing good,” she said in her concession speech, “for in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
