Church Provocatively Entitles Sermon Series ‘APESHT’

Presumably giggling like fratboys over a dirty joke, the “elders” at FōS Church have given a new sermon series a provocative title.

FōS Church, which uses the Greek word for light in its name, came up with the title as an acronym for apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers. The church media people combined the first two letters from shepherd to contrive the vulgar acronym.

The Bible verse used for the sermon titles is Ephesians 4:11, which references Christ’s gifts to the church…which, according to FōS church, is “apesh*t,” a vulgar term used to convey anger and rage.

The church is in British Columbia and advertises itself as a part of “big tent Christianity” on its website.
