Creech to Preach in Chapel Hill

Posted September 25, 1998 7:00 a.m. EDT

— A controversial minister is about to preach again.

Former Raleigh Rev. Jimmy Creech is scheduled to be in the pulpit Sunday morning at the United Church of Chapel Hill.

Creech is the Methodist minister who lost his job at a Nebraska church earlier this year after performing a same-sex wedding ceremony.

Creech says he considers church discrimination against homosexuals "an institutional form of bigotry."
