This Sunday at 2:30, we will view together the moving 85-minute DVD of Pastor James Swilley’s coming out to his Greater Atlanta mega-church congregation. So many of the issues that the Christian church is talking about today regarding homosexuality he addresses in his hour-long explanation. Near the end, his wife and partner in ministry–as well as several others–also speak to those present.
Then, we will wish Godspeed, and Advent and Christmas blessings to you and yours until we meet again on January 16, 2011.
