According to Hairballs, the on-line journalistic branch of the Houston Press, a fire that destroyed the gay-friendly Servant-Savior Presbyterian Church was intentionally set. According to their mission statement: “We are a church with many artists…(we) have responded to God’s call to us to be a garden…we strive in all ways to be earth friendly…(and we) welcome people of any nationality, race, sexual orientation, or religious affilitation. Our mission is to promote justice, peace, and acceptance.”
A wall at the church displayed crosses from around the world. Many were destroyed, but a few were saved. To donate to rebuilding efforts, go here.
I am a member of the church. The outpouring of support has been great. For the next month, we are meeting across the street at Stuchberry Elementary. We will post updates on the website, http://www.servant-savior.org and at our church facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Houston-TX/A-Community-of-the-Servant-Savior-Presbyterian-Church/100465913790
You are in the prayers and meditations of people of faith and spiritual folks everywhere. As Tim’m T. West says: “If it ain’t Love, it ain’t God.”
