I just heard that a Mormon pod-caster named John Dehlin may be excommunicated from his denomination because he tried to help gay Mormons. John Dehlin did not merely think about this issue, but he actually helped people and created hope.
I thought that even his denomination may reject him, God will not think less of what John Dehlin tried to do. As a God’s servant, there is no greater calling than putting one’s spiritual self in harm’s way to help people suffering over human prejudice. I am saying that even the Church cannot cut off one man’s relationship with God.
Let us be in solidarity with John Dehlin, and pray for a spirit of reconciliation and inclusion. May we sustain all God’s workers near and far. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
