An Atheist Delivered a Sermon at a Methodist Church About the Importance of Love and Acceptance

Over the weekend, atheist Darren Garvin was given a chance to address the congregation at The Bridge, a United Methodist Church in Tacoma, Washington.

He used the opportunity to talk about love. And how denying that love to LGBT people is part of what prompted him to leave his faith.

It’s a powerful speech. Kudos to Pastor Abigail Vizcarra Perez for reaching out to Darren and making this happen.

If any parts stand out to you, please leave the timestamp and summary in the comments.
