Driscoll 7-21-14 "... we don't know how to reconcile ... because we're not entirely sure who they are ... ." Driscoll 7-27-15 "After meeting with many former church leaders for reconciliation ... ." Okay, who?

As well, one of the things that has been complex is the fact that a lot of the people that we are dealing with in this season remain anonymous. And so we don't know how to reconcile, or how to work things out with, with people because we're not entirely sure who they are, and so that has, that has made things a little more complex and difficult as well.

After meeting with many former church leaders for reconciliation and closure in Seattle, our family is in the midst of a new adventure as we have moved to the Phoenix area.

Okay, so last year circa July 21, 2014 Mark Driscoll stated that "we don't know hot to reconcile, or how to work things out with, with people because we're not entirely sure who they are ... "

So if Mark Driscoll and company weren't entirely sure who these folks were it seems Driscoll had a chance to meet with "many former church leaders for reconciliation and closure in Seattle". 

Great.  Who?  Name `em.   Better yet, let them volunteer their identities so as to confirm for the record that Driscoll met with them.  That would be helpful. 

What a difference a year makes, apparently.

Was it "We Are Not Anonymous"?  Was it Joyful Exiles? Was it We Love Mars Hill? Was it Repentant Pastors?  How did Driscoll come to discover who the many former church leaders were that he lately said he's met with for reconciliation and closure?  It would be fantastic if guys could come by and confirm that these meetings took place. 

Meanwhile, the mystery that can also get explained is how things went from "we're not entirely sure who they are" to suddenly retroactively announcing that a bunch of people were met with.

Comments are open, and go into moderation.  Come now, you who were once pastors, come and confirm the accuracy of the claim.

My husband was a pastor, and he was pretty vocal and definitely not anonymous when we left, and Driscoll has never contacted him.
