For Clinton, a daily dose of faith along with politics

October 15, 2016 - 7:47 AM

At about 5 a.m. each day — and maybe a little later on weekends — an email from the Rev. Bill Shillady arrives in Hillary Clinton's inbox.

The contents?

A reading from Scripture. A devotional commentary. A prayer. They're sometimes inspired by the headlines — focusing recently, for example, on the role of women in the Bible.

Shillady — executive director of the United Methodist City Society in New York — says he knows Clinton she reads them because she responds to him.

It's no secret that Clinton is a lifelong Methodist.

But Shillady feels that many people don't really know how much her faith "is a daily thing."

He says this is because Clinton's faith is of a personal variety, one she's not very comfortable with broadcasting.

EDITOR;'S NOTE _ One in a series of stories looking at aspects of the lives of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
