An independent council released a report yesterday, regarding sexual misconduct allegations made against Bill Hybels, the founding pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, a megachurch in suburban Chicago. Hybels stepped down last spring, a few weeks after the sexual misconduct allegations against him were made public.

The Houston Chronicle released the first of a three part series on sexual abuse within the Southern Baptist Convention. It’s a heartbreaking read to consider the damage that has been done to the lives of so many. It’s heartbreaking to consider the many other victims who never came forward or who were ignored.

I highly recommend the article, which I think should be a contender for the Pulitzer Prize.
