"Messy Grace" (Sermon on November 5, 2017)

Reference Links

An ABC article dated April 2011:

"We love all people here at Cedar Creek," Pastor [Lee] Powell says. "Everyone is welcome, but we're going to speak the truth in love. Adultery is wrong, greed is wrong, and homosexuality is a sin."

A Cleveland news article dated April 2010:

"It would be unfair to depict [Ben] Snyder as a typical two-fisted warrior for intolerance. In our phone interview, he came across as a thoughtful and gentle man who wrestles with issues of human judgment even as he claims God's certainty. After he declared homosexuality a "sexual immorality," I asked him what he would say to gay and lesbian teenagers who feel bereft and abandoned by God because of his church's teachings. His voice softened.

"If they feel certain they are homosexual, perhaps there is something else we've missed," he said. "These things can be very divisive or misunderstood. For me, there are names and faces to this.""
