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
"Adamís Gift is not simply the dramatic, true story of one manís 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.
"Donít stop reading Adamís Gift until youíve been thoroughly appalled by every nasty letter Jimmy received for marrying a same-sex couple; every muttered slur or veiled threat whispered into Jimmyís 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
It's nice to see the link back.
Other that the ones that were raised in our teaching most of our members come from places where they didn't feel they were being fed spiritually. It's not unusual to hear people refer to themselves as a recovered ________. Maybe a WAS instead of a WASP.
