It breaks my heart every time this happens whatever the reason might be. I do not know Mark personally, have never met him. I do know that although I did not agree with him on every point, he spoke into my life and I was encouraged by his teaching. He was one who despite the rough edges I was thankful to have as a brother. Despite his failings and the call for him to step down, he is still loved by the One who died for all of our sins and failures. And he is still a brother. The blog posted here shares wisdom from someone who watched a loved one go through the shame and heartbreak. It would be worth your time to read.
