Haggard to Lead Prayer Again

Ted Haggard, who was famously expelled from the megachurch he founded after his relationship with a male prostitute was revealed in 2006, is leading prayer again. Haggard will lead a prayer group in his Colorado Springs home on Nov. 12, a move that carries shades of his past—22 years ago he and his wife Gayle started a church in their basement that grew from 20 people to 14,000. Haggard called his new prayer meeting "exploratory" and said "we just thought it would be a great time to get together with people to find out what they're doing and pray for them. Since the scandal broke in 2006, Haggard has pursued a new career as an insurance salesman.
