Well, it’s all come down to this. All the Schullers are out.  Most have been booted and fired from the board and their positions. And CC senior pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman announced Sunday:  “This is the last Sunday we will be worshiping in this building.” She’s leaving to start a new church, location yet to be determined (even though it starts this Sunday). “My entire family has been experiencing a hostile work environment,” said Coleman. Right after she made the announcement, another CC pastor, Bill Bennett, assured the people gathered at the CC that they would meet, as usual, at the CC next Sunday, just like always. And the format will go back to traditional worship… organ, choir, the whole she-bang. So now, the Crystal Cathedral, for the first time ever, has virtually no Schuller at the helm or on the board.  None. And what are Robert and Arvella doing?  According to a statement from Arvella (Sheila’s mother): “We will bless her faith pursuits as we have blessed all our children, but we will not be moving with her to the new location nor are we willing, at this time, to commit to participating in worship at the Crystal Cathedral… How we will express ourselves in worship remains up in the air.” Who will be the new senior pastor at the Crystal Cathedral?  No one seems to know yet?  But one thing’s for sure… they’ll have an uphill battle, including their own physical transition from the CC building within two years, when the Catholic Diocease of Orange becomes the new permanent occupant of the facility they purchased earlier this year. More here… Thoughts? Todd

I guess the Crystal Cathedral is putting the positive thinking mantra into action.  No sale of the Cathedral even though creditors will probably try to force one.  Be sure to read the entire article (from Charisma).  Some pretty heavy faith going on right now in Garden Grove: The International Board of Directors for the Crystal Cathedral Ministries announced Sunday that it has voted to forego choosing a buyer of its Crystal Cathedral property as part of its bankruptcy reorganization plan. “The Crystal Cathedral is not for sale,” said Walt Kallestad, founder and senior pastor for the Church of Joy in Glendale, Ariz., and Crystal Cathedral Ministries board member, from the pulpit of the Crystal Cathedral at its Sunday morning services. In this vote, the board chose to step forward in faith believing that God, in his perfect timing, will provide all the funds necessary to pay every creditor in full and keep the ministry campus in the hands of the Crystal Cathedral Ministries. “The board feels its great responsibility toward all of our vendors and other creditors, to pay them 100 percent of what is owed as soon as possible,” says Sheila Schuller Coleman, senior pastor, “but also a responsibility to the local members and viewers of our nationally and internationally televised Hour of Power to retain the ministry’s Orange County headquarters intact. “Through our filing of Chapter 11 last October,” Coleman said in the pulpit Sunday. “I believe God has used it to turn the eyes of the world toward the Crystal Cathedral because He wants to make a big, bold statement, and as a faith-based ministry it’s important to put our faith in God in this matter. We cannot teach about faith without living out faith in our actions, especially as it concerns a decision such as this. “Taking this kind of stand assures members and viewers that we are committed to them and to their spiritual well-being, now and into the future. The ministry has a commitment to our local congregations, our international viewers, Crystal Cathedral School’s students and parents, and the families of loved ones laid to rest in th via Crystal Cathedral Not For Sale.
