The Mess in the Messenger

Read some difficult news today about Westside Family Church in the USA. It has transpired that their Pastor for 17 years has resigned because he has had an affair. I am sad today for the church, the pastor, his family and the other family involved. I will pray for them all over the next few days.

Dan Southerland did an incredible job in communicating this news to the church and starting the healing process. Watch the video of the message here. It will take 30 minutes but worth the watch.

Dan makes a statement: "The mess in the messenger does not negate the message." Although in no way can we condone an affair. This sin does not negate the message that this messenger has been sharing. I think of some of the things in my life I am not t too proud of. I am so thankful that God is still prepared to use me in communicating this message.

Pray for the Westside Church, pray for your Pastor and build good relationships around you to help protect you.
