An Open Letter to My Parents’ Pastor
JULY 13, 2017 ~ CARRIE SURBAUGH
You don’t know me, and I’m not usually in the habit of writing open letters, but this is a special occasion.
You’ve been the pastor of Alliance United Methodist Church for two Sundays now. Last Sunday you gave a sermon about the authority of Scripture. About halfway through the sermon, you said some things that hurt a lot of people very deeply. Towards the end, you mentioned that you don’t care about hurting people’s feelings (which doesn’t strike me as very pastoral, but that’s another letter).
Long story short, my parents are leaving Alliance.
