Oh God, let all the peoples praise thee!

Bill Hybels gracious announcement that Starbuck’s Howard Schultz backed out of a conference because of a few misinformed protesters.

I love his explanation of Willow Creek’s stance on sexual ethics. This is how the church should be; open to all. My home church has the motto emblazoned on the front wall from Psalm 67:3:

Oh God, let all the peoples praise thee!

If only we could live out that ideal and be more open to encourage it, more accepting of people (like Jesus did) and allow God to do the work of changing us into his likeness (like Jesus did).

Jesus taught people and corrected people but never rejected them, he was never ‘anti’ anyone or any particular lifestyle or social group and neither should his church be.
