The Gospel Should Be Offensive

Event Date: 
October 16, 2011 - 10:15am

Before Jesus was born, his mother Mary predicted that he would offend some people….  She probably didn’t realize how right she would be; that in fact Jesus would offend and challenge so many people in high places that they would kill him for it….

Death by His own Hand

Event Date: 
October 4, 2011 - 10:15am

The following story appeared on a pro-LGBT listserve from which I receive occasional e-mails. I have tried to check the reliability of the story. Evidently the events described did happen, though Egnew’s wife denies she said he could never see their children, and Egnew’s family says they tried to support him after he came out. Stories like this make me incredibly sad for the people involved, and they make me very angry at a church that takes the described action in the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Here is the story, edited for length, as I received it. It is from Pittsboro, North Carolina.

Thank you, gracious God, for the opportunity to be a part of First Congregational United Church of Christ of Madison, as we carry out the missions and ministries that you have already given to us, and that you still have for us in the future.
