Homosexuality and the Church: Moving Through and Beyond the Debate  by Rev. W. P. Campbell, senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Hendersonville, NC.  Campbell challenges conservative Christians to continue to proclaim Scripture's call to holiness while also demonstrating God's love for gays and lesbians through ministry. At times, according to Campbell, evangelicals have failed to proclaim and demonstrate "the love of a Savior who leaves ninety-nine sheep behind to pursue the one."  Campbell examines the ministry to sexually broken people that evangelicals often overlook; the barriers that must be overcome; clarity and complexity about change.  He also examines the Debate: Our Tone: Our Perspective: Defending the Truth.  Campbell includes a chapter from his recent book, Turning Controversy into Church Ministry: A Christlike Response to Homosexuality.    Additional resources can be found at ChurchReflections.com.  Jan/Feb 2011 Theology Matters, p. 1
