Obama Spirituality

Joshua DuBois an informal spiritual adviser to President Barack Obama, poses for a photo in northeast Washington, on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013. Obama is not an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church, and he almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith. But far away from the public eye, his longtime advisers say, the president has carefully nurtured a sense of spirituality that has served as a grounding mechanism during turbulent times, when the obstacles to governing a deeply divided nation seem nearly insurmountable. "I've certainly seen the president's faith grow in his time in office," said DuBois. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
