ministers and felons

so meg scott phipps is out of federal prison and under house arrest. i’m sure you’re wondering “so what?” well, as i was watching the news yesterday, i learned that while she will never be able to go back to her old job (practicing law, working in a government office), she is moving on to a new one. she will be the minister of education at her church. now i’m going to spare everyone my soapbox on the quality (or lack thereof) of christian education, especially in the church. instead, i’d like to point out that a church somewhere has employed a convicted felon who served prison time as a staff minister. talk about grace…forgiveness…redemption. would that we all be so grace-full.
