A good televised worship service

Last Friday, I was flicking past the cable access station — normally populated by strange evangelists or men in fatigues — and saw the television outreach of the Cathedral of Hope. That’s the world’s largest gay, lesbian, transgendered etc. church; it’s in Dallas, and I knew some of its seminarians when I went to Brite. (It was a member of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches until 2003.)

Though no church is perfect, dang the service was good. The preaching was affecting and well paced. It take the Liturgical Revival farther than I would go — both in vesture and inclusive language — but both usages are done quite well.

A great outreach, and it spoke to me both as a Christian and a gay man. Perhaps you can watch it, too
