Recently Read: Nashville pastor turns heads with church sign

The Rev. Bill Campbell recently got some press about the sign slogan he posted at the St. John’s UMC in West Nashville:

“It’s a statement about children. It’s a statement about parenting. It’s a statement about our society and how we accept people and how we accept people that don’t have any choice in where they live,” he said, adding, “In a society where there are a lot of children who have step dads, who have foster dads and who live in blended families, it’s a reminder that having two dads is okay, and it’s not difficult then for them to see themselves as being successful and having a full rich life.”

via Church sign says Jesus had 2 dads, turned out fine – WKRN, Nashville News, Nashville Weather and Sports.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
