    Actually not true; Brian is not pastoring but is still involved, attends an Episcopal church. I don’t know Rob or Donald, but judging others isn’t really my job. Following the Lord is each person’s singular journey as a part of the whole, no? I, for one, did not appreciate this article in CT. I thought it was biased, poorly researched and inadequately supported. You, though, I like. It is important to me that we treasure people through variances in opinion and perspective.

      Joan, totally agree about valuing each unique person God has created.

      Where I see the “judgment” coming in is more along the lines of discernment.

      I can value those three men as unique individuals without holding them up as leaders in the church to be emulated by the rest of us.

      I am glad they seem to have all stepped back in some way as it would no doubt have been forced on them if they had not chosen to do so.
