can you forgive Mark Driscoll?
The ever-edgy and often controversial Mark Driscoll, Pastor of Mars Hill Church (Seattle) made a public confession of his personal failure in having lacked humility, in his November 4th sermon. For some, especially critics, this was blatantly obvious. For others, maybe this is a sign that there indeed is a God. Justin Taylor has a transcript of his confession aka mea culpa, for those of you who want to skim read it + see the buzz with 65 comments (at the time of this writing). I was transfixed watching the video; his best sermon ever.
And a tech note: took me well over an hour to clean up this website, which was hacked last night at 9:00pm. All my index files were overwritten with spam or goofy Flash graphics. At least it wasn’t offensively obscene. It was apparently a security vulnerability in an older version of WordPress, now upgraded. Pardon the disruption.
