If anyone is making a comeback this year, it's Colorado Springs pastor Ted Haggard , who says he was "trying to go low" with his open-to-the-public prayer meeting last night at his house, his first time leading fellow Christians since he resigned from New Life Church in 2006 amid allegations of a sex-and-drugs scandal (via The Associated Press ). Haggard nevertheless captured the spotlight as he welcomed more than 110 people to his home Thursday, calling it a "Kumbaya moment," writes the Colorado Springs Gazette . "People here tonight believe in resurrection and me," he proclaimed as visitors said they came to be with Haggard out of grace and forgiveness. "Christians are to forgive, and I have forgiven Ted," says the Reverend Alan Hawkins, of Albuquerque, New Mexico. While Haggard tells the AP he isn't trying to build a new New Life Church, the Gazette reports Haggard might have to hold worship at a larger Colorado Springs venue because of the turnout. The gatherings, he admits, may "evolve" into a formal nonprofit church.
