state of the forums
As you may have noticed, it's now possible to reach the forums from our home page. So at least for the time being there are no current plans to end the forums. The more active the forums are, the more chance the decision will be to maintain them. So I'm hoping we can get some lively discussions going again.
Jimmy Creech, the Methodist minister (and former Chair of our Soulforce Board), who was defrocked has a new book out, called "Adam's Gift." Mel White, in his blog, on our home page writes
"Adam’s Gift is not simply the dramatic, true story of one man’s courageous and sacrificial stand against denominational practices that lead to the denial of full inclusion for Lesbians and Gays. It is also an intimate and powerful look. The war being waged by Christians against the full inclusion of lesbians and gays is also a struggle for the heart and soul of the Christian church.
"Don’t stop reading Adam’s Gift until you’ve been thoroughly appalled by every nasty letter Jimmy received for marrying a same-sex couple; every muttered slur or veiled threat whispered into Jimmy’s ear; every prejudiced and intolerant testimony against Jimmy in the historic trial that robbed the Christian church of his powerful and prophetic ministry."
You can order the book through Amazon by clicking on the "give" button above and then going to Amazon.com. So I hope everyone will take the time to order the book. Kara
