Introduction

I’m the pastor of New Heart Community Church, a church that made the news recently as a result of a sermon I gave a year ago. In that sermon, I explained why I had changed my mind on homosexuality, but more than that, I had called for unity in the church in the midst of our disagreement.

Our church went through a painful process which resulted in adopting a “Third Way”. As a Southern Baptist Church, it became clear that this wouldn’t be acceptable in our denomination so we were dismissed.

There have been many questions regarding my theology and the pastoral application of it. I hope that this blog will help everyone understand the theological and pastoral journey that I have been through and continue to make. May this be but one voice of many as the church processes through this difficult season.

  1. Pastor Danny, I am very interested in your congregation! So much so I am considering praying about it to become a possible member. Even though I live on the east coast, I watched your sermon this past Monday and it moved me so much! I am in a lesbian relationship and my father too is a pastor and your reaction is one I wish I could have experienced with him. I know now that I only need the approval of my Heavenly Father but it can become overwhelming when there are more people against you the for you. I discovered on Monday the GCN and their conferences. I a looking for a big future one filled with my God and love. If it’s not to much to ask, I was also interested in speaking with, I believe you said her name was Cara and her girlfriend? The two ladies that left your congregation and then returned! Amen! I am interested to speak to another christian lesbian couple. I sometimes feel like I am the only one and it can be slightly drowning. I have been on this journey very recently as I was just born again, and after my strict Hispanics families thoughts. Sorry for writing so much but you have given me so much hope and all I want to do is be a part of a beautiful family, my girlfriend and I. I hope to hear from you! God bless!!
