Memorial Day Sunday 2012 was a historic day at our church, Highland Baptist of Louisville.
Why? We ordained someone to the ministry.
"So what?" you say. "Churches do that all the time."
True, they do. This was a little different, though. A local advocacy group (not the church) issued a press release; perhaps the headline will capture why it was historic:
"Highland Baptist Church Ordains Openly Gay Minister"
Yes we did, and gladly. Make the jump to learn more, and to celebrate with us.
