Phoenix Preacher-Gone?

May 31, 2007

The blog “Phoenix Preacher”, who devoted itself to outing every whisper of foul play within Chaple-dom, seems to have closed its doors.

The post today waves a cryptic good-bye to its readers, stating that “sadness and grief” are overcoming the author but all the while thanking the readers.

Im not sure why its gone.  I didnt keep up on it every day.  In fact, most Calvary guys dont admit to reading it. 

All I know is that it provided a universal place for griping, complaining, tattle-tale-ing, and outing……along with some solid attempts at ministering to those that were hurting.

Im sure that someone else will soon provide a place for those who need to share their pain and wag their tongues.

    Rod,
    It’s not that I pretended that I didn’t read it; it’s that it was Phoenix Preacher was so played out.

    Every movement needs thoughtful criticism to keep itself honest (and Lord knows Calvary Chapels need it- too many Amen Corners afraid to say anything but the company line). Phoenix Preacher could have been that platform with an honest & contrarian voice, but most of the time it came across as the rants of some guy that was hurt by someone within CC, and had an axe to grind. He was WAY too emotionally involved to be thoughtful enough to change minds and perhaps even lead to some reforms.
