What's worth noting is that at least one of the other issues is divorce from his first wife. Reading a couple of articles about Noble, it appears that the issue of drunkenness is entertwined with that of his marital issues.

We might posit that perhaps, trying to run too big of a ministry isolates both pastor and parishioners, and is antithetical to good shepherding. Noble's issues don't prove this, but they are one data point.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
