Ellie’s Translation of TVC pastor Matt Younger’s letter to Karen (Root) Hinkley
Translation of TVC pastor Matt Younger’s letter to Karen (Root) Hinkley [Internet Archive link] is a must read. Yes, we promise that we’d not be publishing another post till Wednesday 27th, but Ellie’s third post at her new blog is so terrific (and so are her first and second posts) that we feel we must promote it as widely as possible while the Village Church story is hot. Have a feast here. And some good belly laughs if you like black humor. But trigger warning for those who’ve been spiritually abused by church leaders:– steel yourselves to read the initial part of the post which is the letter from Village Church Pastor Matt Younger. We encourage our readers to follow TranslationsbyEllie. Well done Ellie, and congratulations! 🙂

Backstory and Summary for those who haven’t yet heard about the Village Church debacle: Jordan Root, of Village Church Texas, has confessed longterm use of child porn, and Village Church has responded with all the typical errors: believing the ‘confession’ of the pedophile, not expelling him from the church, not even putting him under discipline; but putting Karen (his now ex- non- wife) under discipline for getting an annulment without consulting the Church Elders.
