Jesus & Unthrown Stones

unthrown stonesUniversity of Missouri football star Michael Sam has been all over the news the last week or so, but it isn’t simply because he’s a really good football player.  It’s because of his announcement to the world that he’s a gay man.  And a man likely to be drafted into the NFL has never openly announced that he is gay.  So that’s a big deal in our culture. 

And it’s a big deal for the church, because God’s people often don’t know how to respond when our culture makes an all-out push for something that the church has never accepted.  Yesterday at East Point, I talked about this challenge and about the responses I have heard lately regarding Michael Sam.  But more important than what society says is what Jesus would say if he sat down with Michael Sam.  If you’re interested in that, you can listen to the message here:  Jesus & Unthrown Stones

You might be surprised by what you hear.

God bless,

Patrick
