Shillady revealed to the magazine that Clinton had expressed interest in preaching at the United Methodist Church while attending a photo shoot for his book, "Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton", for which Clinton wrote the forward.

CNN obtained a copy of the email Rev. Bill Shillady sent to Clinton on November 9, 2016, the day after Trump beat her in the election.

The book contains 365 of the more than 600 devotions written for Clinton during the election season, along with personal notes, portions of her speeches and headlines that provide context for that day's devotion, according to publisher Abingdon Press. Clinton is writing the foreword, the first time post-election readers will have a chance to hear directly from her about her faith during this time.

"It is Friday, but Sunday is coming". This is not the devotional I had hoped to write.

The reverend emailed a devotional to Mrs. Clinton every day before, during and after her 2016 presidential campaign - a total of 635. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays.

He draws parallels with the experience of Jesus' followers after the Crucifixion, and with the dark times in the lives of people today. "It's the news that you have lost your job". Our hope is that Sunday is coming. Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. But, as the saying goes, "Sunday's coming!" You, our nation, our world is experiencing a black Friday. "Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss", Shillady noted. "You know one of my favorite sayings is 'God doesn't close one door without opening another, but it can be hell in the hallway.' My sister Hillary". Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while'.
