Clay Peck, lead pastor of Grace Place in Berthoud, Colorado, recently issued a public apology in his sermon to the LGBT community. Pastor Peck spoke out against Christians who have showed hate and have refused to show God’s love to LGBT people who visit their church.
Pastor Peck says, “Please forgive me and everyone I represent who has hurt you in the name of religion, no matter how well meaning they may have been. It is not the way of Jesus and I deeply apologize and am sorry.”
The interesting thing, Pastor Peck did not change his theology. Instead, he described what he saw as a biblical third option that sits in between bigotry and celebration.
Watch his message and let us know what you think about what he is saying and his approach to reaching out to those in the LGBT and other communities.
