Sex Experiments for Jesus?

Having grown up in the Dallas.Fort Worth area, I’m quite familiar with the Grapevine, Texas megachurch known as Fellowship Church. In fact, while my wife, Amy, was in seminary at TCU’s Brite Divinity School, we went to Grapevine to participate in one of their worship services.

Following is from a chapter called “Who’s Your Daddy?” which took place with some pretty interesting kids that we [Read More...]
