A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life ___ I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Lyle Schaller (1923-2015)
Lyle Schaller, widely considered by pastors to be the most important and influential observer of church culture during the twentieth century in the United States, died March 18, 2015, at the age of 91. He is survived by six children and Agnes Peterson Schaller, his wife for 69 years. Agnes was a Vanderbilt student whom he met in 1946 at a Fourth of July picnic in Nashville, after serving as an aerial gunnery photographer for three and a half years during World War II.
As this pastor of 30 plus years I clearly state, Thanks for helping us move into the future.
You will be missed.
