White House Visit

Yesterday, while at the White House, I had occasion to take a few photos.  Yes, that was a pompous sounding sentence, but I couldn't resist.  Regardless of one's political persuasions, there is something grand about going to the "WH" ....
The view from West Executive Ave.
Actually, yesterday I had the privilege of being one of 80 Orthodox Christian leaders attending a conference at the White House to learn from and share with the Office of Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships.  For more information, go here.
I am on left next to the lady with the green scarf.
Technically, the Conference was in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building [formerly known as the Old Executive Office Building], in the beautiful Indian Treaty Room. However, this is part of the 18 acres of the White House complex, so saying we have a meeting at the White House is OK.
Here are photos of some of the architectural features of the Indian Treaty Room.

And, then there are the de rigueur tacky souvenir shots
 Plus a few more parting memories ...
