Minister says Sprinkle barred because of trust
The regional minister of the Disciples of Christ responded to a Brite official’s accusation that he was barred from interviewing ministerial candidates because he is gay.

Feb. 19 , 2004
A letter from the Disciples of Christ regional minister says the Brite Divinity School representative who alleges he was discriminated against because he’s gay was asked not to participate in interviews because of a lack of trust and respect.

Stephen Sprinkle, Brite’s director of field education, said he was barred from interviewing ordination candidates from Jan. 12-14. Regional minister Robert Rueter said in a letter that Sprinkle was asked not to participate in interviews because of a petition Sprinkle filed in the 48th Judicial District Court in October.

In the world of black and white photography, it is considered best to avoid the perfect whites and darkest blacks. It is the grays that give depth, the grays that tell the story and shade the object. In life, however, these grays are what take away our depth and blend us together into a finger-painted collage of something quite ordinary.
