Our former pastor is this guy:
Jim Garlow. We used to attend his church. My wife and I married there, he and Carol attended our wedding. We have been in his home, even overnight. I can’t say that we were close friends, but I certainly know him.
Occasionally I see a mention of him in a news article, or see a video clip online. My wife saw something on Facebook today, and it prompted me to check out his timeline. It was a stark reminder of just how far I have come, how much I have changed. But he's changed as well.
His timeline is filled to the brim with radical right-wing opinion on gay rights and abortion and politics, and I now vehemently disagree with his position on every single thing he writes.
