An open letter to Matt Chandler of The Village Church. Today Eagle is going to rejoice at the start of The Village Church practicing repentance. I am amazed that Matt Chandler could do what CJ Mahaney and Mark Driscoll could not, or would not do. I hope The Village Church takes comfort in these encouraging words that I write. Matt Chandler you have this non Neo-Calvinist’s ear and Matt I am willing to listen and learn from you. What book or sermon series would you recommend me listening to? Continue reading
This is my analysis of The Village Church letter of apology plus my thoughts on Matt Chandler’s sermon. Inb this post I explain why the apology by The Village Church (TVC) falls short and the issues it contains. I am puzzled over what Karen Hinkley has to repent over…is it being a woman? I also explain what I think would be repentance and an apology that would be amazing that could help TVC out.

The treatment of Karen is unacceptable. This letter was emailed off to Matt Chandler, The Central Elders of The Village, Steve Hardin, Matt Younger and the campus and staff of Dallas Northway Campus.
