Southlake’s Gateway church conducted its first weekend of services since Robert Morris, the founder and senior pastor, resigned after confessing to molesting a child in the 1980s, starting when the girl was 12. The megachurch’s main Southlake campus was full on Saturday night and there were protesters outside; Sunday was a different story.
Sunday’s sermon and addressing of Morris’ resignation by a church elder were recorded from Saturday service and played for the half-full auditorium Sunday, with many leaving before it concluded.
