Irreverent Wrongs

Thabiti Anyabwile @ discusses the brewing scandal regarding Rev. Jeremiah Wright's recent comments during the Bill Moyers interview, at the Detroit NAACP meeting, and at the National Press Club. He presents some helpful lessons for pastors:

1. Feed the sheep, feed the sheep, feed the sheep.

2. Be willing to suffer reproach for doing good.

3. Think carefully about a separation of church and state principle in my own ministry and public comments on public issues.

4. Seek counsel before speaking.

5. Pray and war against pride.

In providing a helpful example, he concludes with what he would have said if he were forced to do a Press Club event in Wright's situation.
