We want to update you regarding Andy Savage. The investigation is wrapping up and the initial findings give us assurance that we can begin the long process of moving forward as a church. Just as the culture around us is waking up to the suffering expressed by the courageous voices of the #metoo movement, we are taking very seriously our commitment to fully understand how our church should minister to the needs of the people we impact. Andy Savage remains on leave. We will release further updates as the situation requires.

The Commercial Appeal article does not bode well for Savage, as his former boss has admitted to failing to fulfill his duty of mandatory reporting of sexual assault, and has resigned in shame.  In other words, at least now vs. then, he views it as not consensual fornication, but as sexual assault.  

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

That NY Times video was brutal to watch, but I think that it would be good for everyone to see. 

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells
