Gayle and Ted Haggard: Interview

I was alarmed awake this morning. My wife was listening to a streamed interview of Ted and Gayle Haggard that took place in February this year. You may recall that Haggard, pastor of a 14,000 member church in Colorado Springs, was accused of homosexual liasons.

It is not particularly easy to watch but evokes difficult feelings. Not necessarily because we are guilty of the same or similar sins, but because we are sinners who have been forgiven and often we need reminding of what it means to be forgiven, and equally important, to know and practice forgiveness.

Try not to miss this interview. (Put the cursor at the head of the link and do a (Ctrl-click). We hope you are blessed. e.c. & j.c.
