Frank Schaefer, The Price for Standing for Love

Rev. Frank Schaefer is no longer a United Methodist Minister.  He lost his credentials because he was found guilty of violating church discipline.  His crime?  He officiated at a wedding.   The wedding was for his son, Tim, and Tim’s partner.    He was given a thirty day suspension, a time out to think about it and come back to church officials with his hat in his hand and say he wouldn’t do it again.   If he couldn’t, he would have to give up his ministry.  This is his career.  His livelihood.  He spoke to me about his situation and the agonizing decision he faced.   His discipleship cost him his career.  It is the going price for standing for love.
