After a leave of absence from pastoring due to a divorce and other issues, Bishop Eddie Long returns to the pulpit of New Birth Missionary Baptist church in Georgia.
Desert News reported in September of 2010, Long was accused of sexual misconduct by former church members. The case was later settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Shortly after, his wife filed for divorce.
As reported in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Long returned to preaching during the church's New Year's Eve service and will continue weekly.
