For those of you that are unaware. It was disclosed to the Westside Kings Church in Calgary a few weeks ago that their senior pastor had been having an affair. This was a blow to a lot of us especially to some really close friends of mine who have been working closely with him for a number of years now. The youth pastor there writes this post.
Truth is, I’m still not feeling much, still pretty numb, but the chance to meet this morning is helping me see my friend as more than a symbol, more than an action- I am remembering him as a person. I guess I’m remembering myself as more than an action too. This is part of my story now. I’m not sure exactly what that means, or how this chapter ends (or if it does) but I am remembering that walking away is not the model that Christ has left me.
