Quick on the heels of announcing a social media hiatus Pastor Mark Driscoll has given “jumping the shark” a whole new meaning.
As the founding pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle and father of 17 children, Driscoll is shifting the focus of his life toward the rich past of the Church. A consummate family man and brimstone preacher, Driscoll confessed to feeling the weight of responsibility and leaving a legacy for his growing brood.
And what Christian institution has withstood the test of time and left a more enduring legacy than the Roman Catholic Church.
That’s right, ladies and gentleman, Pastor Mark is trading in his reformed beard and hipster vest for burning incense and Hail Marys.
This news caused no small measure of uproar from saints and sinners alike, but Pope Francis was quick to welcome Driscoll with open arms.
