Church Sign Of The Day
The above message is being displayed on an electronic billboard in Toledo, Ohio. The church has issued the below statement in support of their campaign.
This simple statement is intended to be a gift to those who have experienced hurt and discrimination because of their real or perceived sexual orientation. The Church seeks nothing less than the healing of the world, and Central UMC wants to offer words and acts of healing to those hurt and marginalized. Also, declaring that being gay is a gift from God is a prophetic call to the Church to get out of the business of marginalizing gay and lesbian persons from the Church, and to welcome them as full members.Refreshing and positive religious news!
