400-408 – • One News Now (3/21/2011) Crystal Cathedral covenant chaffs choir. 

The Crystal Cathedral is now "doing it right," requiring members of the choir and worship teams to actually be Christians, and in general, embracing the Bible as the infallible Word of God throughout all of their ministries – including, obviously, the area of sexual intimacy that should only be within the bounds of marriage between a man and a woman.  Sheila Schuller Coleman, the pastor of the Crystal Cathedral, and her leadership team should be applauded and supported by the Christian community, not criticized and shunned. 

But, what happens when a church begins "doing it wrong"?  What were the signs the environment was becoming "unhealthy" for you and your family?  Among the many concerns people have, things like the quality of the pulpit, children's church, youth group, small groups, service times, ushers, and parking, etc., what's the most important to you?  Why'd you leave your previous church when many others were perhaps staying?  And, why'd you stay when perhaps many others were leaving?  What would have to happen for you to leave your current church?  What are some signs of an unhealthy church?  If you just moved to a new city, what are the two or three most important things you would want to know about a church that would lead you to perhaps visit?  Have any of you ever left a church because the teaching was too meaty?

• LAT (3/22/2011) NASCAR grapples with a downshift in popularity.  The nation's premier motor racing series has seen attendance and TV ratings plummet in the last four years. A lagging economy is certainly a factor, but some of the damage has been self-inflicted — particularly with the widely panned Car of Tomorrow.
