With his recent announcement, he joins a trend of pastors of big congregations opting to plan for their succession, rather than leaving due to age, illness, or scandal.” I happen to love that the word trend is supposed to link to an article apparently explaining or giving examples of this trend, but turns out to be a broken link instead. 😉 Steve Wright says: February 28, 2017 at 11:09 am Offered solely as an observation but I found it fascinating that Keller’s wife is on church staff and his son is in ministry there in NYC as well…. Once more, just goes to show one can’t paint their criticisms with too broad a brush. Steve Wright says: February 28, 2017 at 11:15 am I’m not a subscriber and could not read the whole Calvary Chapel article but the opening part I notice is not quoting any CCA council members by name, on record. Michael says: February 28, 2017 at 11:19 am I didn’t know they put the CC article behind a pay wall… my apologies. It’s not really much of an article… Steve Wright says: February 28, 2017 at 11:22 am It’s not really much of an article… ——————————— The part I could read is basic stuff covered here at this blog over 2 months ago. 🙂 Michael says: February 28, 2017 at 11:24 am Steve, Not meaning to be boastful,but this is one of the few times CT hasn’t contacted me on a CC piece…and it shows. I was left wondering why they bothered… Michael says: February 28, 2017 at 11:26 am They did talk to Reis and Randall…and Brodersen. Tim says: February 28, 2017 at 11:49 am Thanks for including a link to my post “Pastors and Judges” regarding Doug Wilson and blame shifting. Michael says: February 28, 2017 at 11:56 am Tim, thank you…excellent article. Dan from Georgia says: February 28, 2017 at 1:47 pm Thanks Tim for your post and Michael for including the link today.
