Seminary denies that Schuller is ignored

Crystal Cathedral pastor claims he's been shunned
As a prominent pastor whose Crystal Cathedral was only a few stone throws away, Robert H. Schuller was invited along with the local Catholic bishop to extend greetings at the June 26 start of the Association of Theological Schools’ biennial meeting in Garden Grove, California. But his ten minutes of remarks to hundreds of seminary officials also included a lament about being shunned by those clergy-training campuses.

“I never got an invitation to speak at a theological seminary,” said Schuller in reviewing his success in reaching the unchurched and teaching other pastors through his annual institutes. “I’m on a level of practicality that seminaries would be embarassed to put in catalogs,” he observed, but added, “No one in this room has encountered secularism like I have.” Before concluding, he reiterated: “I’m still waiting for my first invitation to lecture.”
