Today is Dan Zassick’s birthday. We are privileged to be hosted in The First Congregational Church of Christ in Rock Springs, WY.
Yesterday, we road 77 miles from Wamsutter, WY to Rock Springs with a strong head wind greeting us for the last 12 miles of the trip. We were able to shower in the nice facilities provided by the Rock Springs City Civic Center.
I took a minor fall on my bike yesterday, resulting in a play out of my right index finger. The local Bike and Trike shop owned and operated by Jason Medler repaired my bike at no charge.
The church provided supper and cinnamon rolls for today’s breakfast. We will be attending this mornings 10:30 service which I’m told is the local Wyoming LGBT+ Pride service. The theme of today’s service is “Love Wins.” indeed love does win. The Bible tells us so. There is nothing greater than love.
The service today preached that yes we should love all people but behaviors “sin” should be rebuked. LGBTQ’s agenda was not far in my mind. Sadly, I sat and listened to a twisting of God’s word. I am thankful for the hospitality I have experienced by this church. I pray that they will see the error of their outreach and take an approach that loves the sinner but hates the sin.
I spent the afternoon riding my bike around Rock Springs. I enjoyed a beer and salad at Wendy’s and a taco salad provided by the church. I love this ride.
