九名 Mars Hill 教會牧者在公開信要求 Driscoll 牧師停止領導並接受調查
Nine of Mars Hill Church’s 65 pastors, including the lead pastor of one of its 16 multisite campuses, have called for Mark Driscoll to step down and for church elders to play a more prominent role in restoring the health of the Seattle megachurch.
“It is time to take responsibility for our church, regardless of how much our current bylaws prevent us from exercising that authority,” they wrote in a 4,000-word letter (full text at bottom). “It grieves us that the only voice that has never been heard in all of this is the voice of the current elders.”
The letter was circulated within Mars Hill last Friday, before Driscoll’s Sunday announcement of eight next steps while the church investigates charges against him. The letter was obtained by Patheos blogger Warren Throckmorton and published by Religion News Service today.
