In its article today about the strained relationship between presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama and his pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the New York Times mentioned that Trinity United Church of Christ, Wright's church on the South Side of Chicago, has taken up a collection to help pay for security guards and public relations.

At the beginning of April, Talking Points Memo reported that Obama's chief strategist, David Axelrod, helped the church get in touch with Jasculca-Terman & Associates in Chicago.

"We have volunteered and are advising the congregation," Rick Jasculca, chairman and CEO of Jasculca-Terman, told PRWeek. The pro bono work is "not at all with Rev. Wright."
