It's a new day for the Cathedral and the dude who used to run it

Wall Watchers, we finally have another intoxicating episode in the Robert Schuller saga.

It’s been a while since we heard a peep from the chisel-jawed son-of-a-preacher man. After he got the boot from dear old Dad for not being a pastor in his old, shriveled image, he took a sabbatical to find his ministerial roots.

He did – right back to broadcasting as he and Chris Wyatt (co-founder of GodTube or Tangle or whatever they are calling that now) purchased AmericanLife TV with plans to make it “the destination for family values.”

Personally, I don’t get channels on my trusty satellite network that requires aluminum foil and a stiff northern wind to pick up programming, so I’ve never heard of AmericanLife TV. But there it is, and Junior Schuller snatched it for his own means.

I suppose it was learning from experience because Dad’s network is now broadcasting static and prior to that, church at the Crystal Cathedral was a MLM convention instead of ministry.

Hey, Junior Schuller, revenge really is a dish served cold… unless it’s a TV Dinner, which is where we find you. It seems the now “Chairman of ALN” took it to the airwaves this past weekend with “Everyday Life”. How’s that working out?

“This is a story of redemption,” said Schuller, ALN’s chairman.

The show is a scripted one with actors and Schuller as the narrator, telling the story of a man who has lost his way spiritually and then realizes what the important things in life are.

“Jesus taught us by telling parables,” Schuller says. “And if he were among us now, he would use video and film, which are the most powerful media available to us today. We present these ideas to our viewers. I’m telling a story here and it’s up to people to put the pieces of the puzzle together.”

Cryptic, ain’t it? The son is forced to become a prodigal by his father – one who was leading others to Christ and serving God better than most of us – and then decides to keep on walking and find his own path.

Redemption. You think?

The line about Jesus using video was probably taught to him while on his father’s knee, but now the son is becoming the teacher.

Good on ya’, Junior. We’ll all be willing for that olive branch to be extended and have ALN begin broadcasting services at the Crystal Cathedral. Wouldn’t that be rich? Dad paying Junior to be on air.

Ah, ministry. Bless the Lord.

    I have found a spiritual path apart from any particular church. Years ago a born again Christian, I no longer find any one religion that speaks only to my heart. God is Love….Dr. Schuller Senior founded an amazing ministry based on love and faith and the Power of Positive thinking which is God’s Power….the Power of Love….

    You stole my thunder, more or less, I was thinking speculation or assumption, while you’re suggesting he may have been spoon fed that garbage.

    Now that’s the best laugh of the day thus far, with 2hrs 19 min. to a new day!

    The way he seems to be headed, this seems to fall somewhere between “fruit don’t fall far from the tree” and “That “bunch” will do anything for money”………., as my Daddy always said about folks with questionable motives. 🙂

    “I’m telling a story here and it’s up to people to put the pieces of the puzzle together.”

    I have news for both the Schullers………..the only story they have to tell is of the hope of salvation through Jesus Christ……..and if they are true teachers of the Word, THEY will put “the pieces of the puzzle” together for our better understanding.
