Isla Vista Prayer Vigil for Rev. Frank Schaefer – October 15

Pray for Pastor Frank Schaefer as he faces another church trial –

The Judicial Council hearing will take place in Memphis Tennessee on October 22, 2014.

This body is the highest court in the United Methodist Church; its decision is final and cannot be appealed. Rev. Schaefer could be defrocked again, this time permanently!

Back Story:

– Pastor Frank performed his gay son’s wedding in 2007, for which he faced a church trial in 2013. Following the trial, he lost his job/career. -Frank successfully appealed to a higher United Methodist court and was reinstated as a pastor on June 26.

-He was given a new parish in Isla Vista, CA on July 1st which he is currently serving.

-Now Pastor Frank’s reinstitution is being appealed by the church’s prosecution.

Stand in solidarity with Pastor Frank Schaefer and his family as he is facing judicial proceedings for the “crime” of blessing the love relationship of his gay son.

Pray in hope for a better world in which all are afforded equal human rights.
