Doing the Math on the Louisiana College Debacle

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Two months ago I expressed my deep concerns on the Louisiana College situation and how it threatened to derail us off mission as a convention (Here) .  It has been my prayer to have a tone and attitude that is measured, irenic, and hopeful in accord with the counsel of Proverbs 18:13 which instructs that, “He who gives an answer before he hears, It is folly and shame to him.”

However, as I write today on the eve of the Louisiana College Trustee meeting much has transpired and been reported to the public regarding the turmoil at Louisiana College.  With the collateral damage that has occurred in the last two months, it is hard not to conclude that the present situation is an “epic fail” in leadership on a number of levels.
