Hybels is nothing if not courageous. Recently Willow hosted a dialogue with Soulforce, a group of homosexual activists, who have targeted several major churches asking for a dialogue. You can imagine the heat he has taken for this. I, for one, think it’s a great idea to invite those who oppose the church and its moral commitments to a worship service, lunch and discussion. It is in the interest of Christ to make it clear that the church is about redemption and that the person fartherest away from God is more loved than we can imagine. I can’t imagine that Hybels in any way gave ground on the moral imperatives of the Bible.
