Countdown to the Justice Calls Book Release – Day 8

In anticipation of the release of Justice Calls (you can pre-order it here), I’m sharing an excerpt a day. Today’s is from Derek Penwell, author of The Mainliners’s Survival Guide to the Post-Denominational World and pastor of Douglass Boulevard Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Louisville, Kentucky.

  

“Where’s the church on this whole issue of our gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender sisters and brothers created by God? Who stands with them? Who stands up for them? And what would it even look like to stand up? . . . What would it take for the church to make a difference in a world where people are bullied, killed, and abandoned for being who God created them to be? What would it take?”
