Thank You for Your Continued Prayers and SupportWe want to thank those of you have attended speaking engagements and sent words of encouragement to the firstname.lastname@example.org address. We also thank those that continue to pray for and support this ministry.Upcoming Events
Pastor Mark will be speaking at the upcoming Hillsong Conference in Sydney and London. Please be praying as he travels, for health and for open hearts to hear the Gospel. You can learn more about upcoming events where Pastor Mark will be preaching here.
As of ... right about now anyway, the Hillsong event is described as an upcoming event. Seems like everyone except the web admins at Mark Driscoll Ministries got the memo?
Given how much sharing Driscoll died about crying a lot and recycling stories from the Gateway conference with a few additional details having the Driscolls at Hillsong might have been a distraction, it might also have been redundant. Spoiler alert, thanks to Thrive we learned Driscoll cried a lot and had stories to tell about how the media blocked his driveway and had a chopper flying over a house he told Russ Bowen (camera rolling, microphone hot) that, uh, wrong address, bro. There's nothing Grace could have (or should) add to that update. Why bring her on for a Hillsong rerun when Mark Driscoll updated plenty?
Driscoll preached recently and tickets were even on sale for a simulcast presentation, though the forthcoming Luke content sounds like it's a recycling (perhaps?) of the Luke series from the old Mars Hill days. An earlier Driscoll would have warned against guys who recycle their greatest hits because they don't have new stuff but new stuff is apparently also in the works ...
Something that needs correcting, Driscoll never mentioned penis homes in any sermon he has ever preached in the history of his ministry, not that Wenatchee The Hatchet can ever document as yet. There were words about a penis and a home published by William Wallace II on the old unmoderate Midrash. You can read all that over here:
But that's not a sermon. That doesn't mean Mark Driscoll doesn't ahve to live with the reality of stuff he wrote under a pen name but it does mean the folks in the press reporting "penis homes" as a sermon are utterly wrong and a fact correction needs to be made about that. Who's reported the penis home stuff as in sermons? Well ...
The Guardian, for one. Wenatchee's enjoyed reading the Guardian for over a decade so out of consideration for correcting a factual error here's a word out to their editors that WtH has found no evidence "penis homes" was in a sermon.
