This morning we arrived at the church to find the building chalked up with anti-Christian slogans. This wasn't gang graffiti; it was cynical, anti-church, semi-Marxist hate-speech. Gems like "Sunday is the fit conclusion to an ill-spent week" and other bitter, hateful screeds.
I told our church (among a lot of other things), "People can desecrate our meeting house, but they can never desecrate the church without our consent and cooperation."
Seven years here, and eighteen years of ministry, and I've never seen anything like this.
