Speaking truth to power
Dear Pastor Gregory Boyd: My editors do not favor the “open letter” genre, so let’s consider this a “closed letter,” something I’d more or less sneak to you. I have the impulse to write because I have been reading so much about you and your ministry at Woodland Hills Church near St. Paul. You’ve been written up in the New York Times and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, and on numerous Web sites. The Times even had you on the front page, which is not a familiar location for evangelicals unless they are involved in sexual or financial scandals, executing power grabs, selling the prosperity gospel or telling Americans that we have to like war, for God’s sake.
