So in the recent publicity over the National Prayer Breakfast, I read this article, “Jesus Plus Nothing”, from Harper’s, about the group that runs the National Prayer Breakfast.
A dozen guys living together, focused on Christian fellowship, near D.C., somehow associated with the National Prayer Breakfast. This sounded familiar. Oh yeah…The Jonathan House.
See the history of the Jonathan House, from the Internet Archive.
And, we read, the Coe family involved both places.
Now the Jonathan House is not as wierd as the folks in the Harper’s article are made out to be and I don’t really trust the reporter, but I still feel kind of mystified about the way in which this linking was so mysterious and yet apparently so important.
