Some think that those with a high view of the law are the legalists. But the opposite is true.
Whenever the 4th of July weekend rolls around, I'm reminded of times I've traveled in countries where freedom is severely curtailed. Or they were freshly freed from the chains of injustice, and the joy of their release was palpable.

If you did little more than read headlines, this week welcomed same-sex marriage into the mainstream of our culture.
Same-sex marriage is headed for your community. This is no time for fear or outrage or politicizing. It’s a time for forgiven sinners, like us, to do what the people of Christ have always done. It’s time for us to point beyond our family values and our culture wars to the cross of Christ.
It's time for every church to be crystal-clear on this issue. Adding marriage to your church constitution won’t solve all the problems, but it may save you from trouble down the road.
“Choir goes patriotic this Sunday, come worship with us.”
