Many people are listening to The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. Many people have been impacted by Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church–in positive and negative ways. It seemed appropriate to us to have a conversation about the podcast. Our aim is not to cast shade on Mark Driscoll or Mars Hill, but rather, to consider things that we all can learn. We bring on our newest regular contributor, Patrick Crandall, for this conversation.
The guys talk about an appropriate posture regarding the failures of other Christians and Christian leaders. And then, we consider how pastors and members can work to build healthy cultures of leadership in our churches.
In the first Hot Topics episode--for our members--we discuss the recent apostasy of Joshua Harris, along with the failures of Tullian Tchividjian, Mark Driscoll, and James MacDonald. How should we think about these things? And, can a man return to ministry after a failure?
