Hello there -- Theo, CR's administrative assistant, here! Soulforce is a significant "force" to reckon with as the people in this organization pursue an aggressive strategy for 2004. Stirrings are taking place in state of MA as the Constitutional Convention gets under way. A special gathering will feature Mr. Jimmy Creech, de-frocked United Methodist minister of some time back, and now an "official" with the Soulforce organization. Notice that they refer to him as "Rev" which he definitely IS NOT! Details below as issue of sodomite/lesbian marriages becomes more intense!
