Ted and Gayle Haggard to visit local church
Ted and Gayle Haggard will speak at Lifepoint Church this Sunday. Ted Haggard, former pastor of the New Life Church and president of the National Association of Evangelicals, resigned from both positions in 2006 following a sex and drugs scandal.
His wife, Gayle Haggard, wrote a book “Why I Stayed,” published in January. The New York Times bestseller chronicles Gayle Haggard’s struggles to forgive her husband.
The couple will speak at Lifepoint, which meets at Riverbend High School, to kick off an upcoming sermon series on marriage.
The church’s press release says:
Today nearly 50% of marriages end in divorce and many of the remianing 50% are struggling if not crumbling. Lifepoint will begin a new message series this Sunday dealing with these hard truths. The series is entitled ‘It’s Complicated.’
