Our dead reputations can't be resurrected by vengeance.

More questions, more answers. You may be wondering why we keep doing these Q&A sessions, and Pastor Mitch provides a great answer in the first minute or so of the first minute below. Basically: Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians was a really long Q&A session. So, there’s a precedent in church history of people asking serious questions and receiving honest, pastoral guidance.
At last Sunday’s session, we received questions about women deacons, excommunication and intellectual honesty when dealing with the trickier matters of our faith.
You can watch past Q&A videos here
. And if you have questions about Christianity, the Bible, life, the universe or anything else, we’d love to have you join us for our next Q&A session this Sunday 15 minutes after the service. As always, questions can be texted in beforehand. To text us your questions, text “QNA42” to 91011

Hi, my name is Vanessa and I haven’t been on a small group
in over a year. And I work here. Don’t tell the pastors, but I wasn’t on a small group because I didn’t want to be on one. Just kidding. They knew that. Or if they didn’t, they do now. But seriously, what makes a staffer and former small group leader decide to skip all the small group hoopla for a year?
I’ve been on a lot of Summitview small groups in the past 19 years. Somewhere around 10 different ones, give or take a few multiplications/un-multiplications/morphs over the years. I have been on small groups that I absolutely adored. We all enjoyed each other, wanted to spend time together outside of the once-a-week Bible study and had engaging conversations that went beyond Sunday school answers when studying the Bible together. We served together and drew others into our group.

Last Monday, the Washington Post broke the story
that Tullian Tchividjian, author and senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., had resigned his position after admitting to an extra-marital affair.
Tchvidjian made this statement to the Post
I resigned from my position at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church today due to ongoing marital issues. As many of you know, I returned from a trip a few months back and discovered that my wife was having an affair. Heartbroken and devastated, I informed our church leadership and requested a sabbatical to focus exclusively on my marriage and family. As her affair continued, we separated. Sadly and embarrassingly, I subsequently sought comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself. Last week I was approached by our church leaders and they asked me about my own affair. I admitted to it and it was decided that the best course of action would be for me to resign. Both my wife and I are heartbroken over our actions and we ask you to pray for us and our family that God would give us the grace we need to weather this heart wrenching storm.
In his teens and twenties, Tullian was a prodigal who discovered a life-changing faith in Jesus after a season of hedonistic living. This faith lead him to pursue pastoral ministry. He would eventually plant a church that would merge with D. James Kennedy’s famous Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, where he would become the senior pastor. Throughout his pastoral career, Tchvidjian championed the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ above all powers. His book Jesus + Nothing = Everything
has helped many of us at Summitview.
