Dear God, I’m so thankful that Glenn Beck does not attend my church. As a pastor of an Open and Affirming congregation that accepts all people without exception, this is a difficult prayer for me to acknowledge.
In addition to being an O&A church, we are a peace seeking, SOCIAL JUSTICE working church family. According to Mr. Beck, we are closeted socialists and communists! As I read the Gospels, however, it seems we are in some pretty good company.
Perhaps my prayer should be — rather than being thankful that Glenn Beck is not a member of Midway Hills Christan Church — that I am grateful I AM a member and pastor here!
P.S. No one has fired me yet!
