Church giving 'great sex' sermons might get booted
MELBOURNE, Fla. – A church giving sermons about sex may have to find a new home. Brevard Public School District's risk-management department has threatened to boot New Hope Church out of Sherwood Elementary because of a worship series titled "Great Sex for You."
Church leaders mailed 25,000 fliers, asking residents "Is Your Sex Life A Bore?" The three-week program kicked off inside the school auditorium. Pastor Bruce Cadle had said the Christian church has been "shamefully silent" on the taboo topic.
Mark Langdorf, the director of risk management, says the mailers generated complaints, were not appropriate for elementary school children and shouldn't be used to advertise the sermon in the school.
Langdorf says the church's lease contract is under review.
GJ - I can find a wealth of material for Church and Change to copy at the other New Hope websty:
Bruce Cadle: Pastor Bruce's casual teaching style, real life illustrations and sense of humor will help you not only learn the Bible but also apply it to your daily life.
Bruce has been married to Valerie for thirty-two years. They have two children and five grandchildren.
Bruce is also the ultimate Cubs fan!

Your readers can see for themselves with this post, GJ, how deceptive you really are. I hope the readers who think your on the up-and-up will finally have it sink in what kind of person you really are. Too bad they have never met you personally. It would take even less time for them to figure out what makes you tick.
