Hundreds of Collier’s closest family and friends packed into New Hope Ministries in Lakewood, Colorado Saturday to celebrate her life. But minutes before the start of the funeral service, relatives say they were shocked to hear that the funeral service would not be able to continue. New Hope’s Pastor Ray Chavez informed the mourning family that the services for Collier would not be able to go on because of the “inappropriate” video that Collier’s family wanted displayed at her casket, relatives say. The video contained photos of Collier kissing her wife on the lips. Another photo captured Collier leaning down on one knee, proposing to her wife. Family members were told that they would be able to proceed with the funeral as long as those images were edited out of the video… Collier’s family decided that they would not edit the video, and instead moved the funeral to Newcomer Funeral Home, which is located across the street from the church. The family carried Collier’s flowers and photos to the funeral home. Collier’s casket had to be closed, placed in the hearse, and driven across the street.keep reading
She said the first time that she preached at an Assembly of God Church, she commanded a man in a wheelchair near the back of the sanctuary to stand up and walk. But the man didnâ€™t budge.
So she hollered at him again: Stand up and walk. But still he did not move.
So a third time, she thundered: Stand up and walk. But still no movement.
About that time, the pastor of the church stepped to her side and whispered: â€œMrs. Hickey, heâ€™s not going to stand up and walk. He has no legs.â€
Oh, the story brought laughter to Oral Robertsâ€™ memorial service. And Hickey laughed along.I share BBBâ€™s response: â€œI didnâ€™t laugh, however. Iâ€™ve seen too many self-proclaimed faith healers use desperately-ill people as props over the decades. And if Hickeyâ€™s Almighty God is incapable of healing legless men, he isnâ€™t much of an Almighty God.â€ You can read the article here. Amen. What do YOU think?
