HERETIC OR HEALER? - The Salem Gazette

So, we're in the paper again. The front page of the Salem Gazette has the above photo and an article which iss entitiled, "HERETIC OR HEALER?" Jeepers, who came up with that polarizing line - oh well, it is generally a good article, which is also followed by a short article about the person who challenges our way of doing things. He is fighting off police charges for causing a ruckus with his bullhorn over Halloween. Okay now that's a bit funny.

If you don't live in Salem, and don't get the Gazette, the story is here. If you want to respond you can write the editor at 72 Cherry Hill Drive, Beverly, MA 01915; or you can join the online discussion on the website. The online version does not have the print version title "HERETIC OR HEALER?" That was saved for the local people I guess.

Thanks Sally and Pam,

The photo was taken at The Gathering.

Not a bad article. It's funny how many people opt to go places and yell at people rather than live in a place and get to know people. The former is a far simpler model than the latter, so I suppose that's the "draw."

Pastor Phil said...

It actually is a fairly small number of people who come to Salem and yell, and on some years the people who come with them are quite unhappy the experience, and have told us so.

It's a fantastic article.

Many of the comments that followed were unfortunate, however.
