Worship Tent - White House

WASHINGTON (AP) — A non-stop worship service is in its second week on the Ellipse, the grassy park just south of the White House.

A large tent is erected over folding chairs and a stage where musicians are leading hymns and prayer around the clock until election day.

The director of David's Tent DC, Jason Hershey, says it's modeled after the worship King David established when he reigned in Jerusalem, and isn't a political event despite the time and place.

Father Dean Schultz, a charismatic Episcopal priest taking part in the event, says it's a blessing that Americans are able to gather for worship outside the house where their president lives.
