Letter: Please return stolen sign letters
Would the person or persons that have been vandalizing our sign please return the letters that were taken last week?
We understand that you don't agree with our Lord's teaching about marriage as contained in the Matthew 19:4-5 passage that was summarized on the sign in front of our church. We understand that people feel strongly about this issue on both sides. But tampering with, breaking and stealing parts of the sign is not the way to handle our differences.
We hold no ill will against you. None at all! We gladly forgive you and would be more than happy to discuss what we believe to be a loving and caring scriptural teaching ... that marriage is the union of one man and one woman for life. We simply want to speak the truth in love so that all who struggle with sin can be brought to repentance and know the truth in love so that all who struggle with sin can be brought to repentance and know the unbelievable love and forgiveness Christ won for us on the cross.
