When I heard about the resignation of Pastor Driscoll, I was not surprised. There were so many rumors before it happened. What took me by surprise was, what I read about Pastor PIPER. Read it and be amazed!
“John Piper once also found himself stepping down from ministry to focus on similar character flaws of pride. He healed and returned to minister to his church until retirement. When Pastor Mark presented his statement, Piper responded with an encouraging word that points to the belief that God works through all things for the benefit of those who love him. He wrote, “I hope Mark Driscoll feels a tidal wave of hope-filled prayer for a new day and a new man in this season.”
I thought, If I were in his shoes (I was), would I be humble enough to take time off, heal,come back and serve. Will I be able to feel such sympathy about a fellow traveler? May be may be not! Have you ever heard of any one doing that? That is what I call “walking the talk”.
