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! Amen. P.S. No one has fired me yet!
