NYTimes Vows column (wedding feature)

Recommended Posts

Heavens to Betsy, Josh Harris's book has gone mainstream - from today's NYTimes Vows column in the Style section:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/21/fashi ... wanted=all

As a teenager, Mr. Wong said, he had been dismayed by the lack of advice on relationships with women. In his senior year of high school he came across a book for Christian singles, “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,†by Joshua Harris, that became his dating bible. It influenced him as he entered Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to study information technology and, later, as he started his career. (He is now a business analyst at CACI, an information technology company in Arlington, Va.)

I Kissed Dating Goodbye has been popular with non-fundie evangelicals for quite a while.

we can only hope this book leads to less fundies in the world.

Josh Harris is indeed alive, well, married, pastor of the former flagship church (Covenant Life Church- CLC-, Gaithersburg, MD) of the Sovereign Grace Ministries movement (SGM, think CJ Mahaney) and scrambling as fast as he can away from various lawsuits being leveled both at SGM, CLC and several former pastor-colleagues of his relating to the alleged abuse of minors prior to his time taking over the top job at CLC.

In fairness to him, it's not alleged he was at all a part of the abuse that is said to have taken place. Still, because of his former strong ties both to several named defendants in the lawsuit - including his mentor, CJ Mahaney - and to the parachurch movement he was a featured leader in for many years, he seems unable to clearly and unambiguously distance himself from the alleged perpetrators and help in the investigation process.

Josh Harris gets mentioned in the communist-liberal mouthpiece NY Times, in a section that has wedding anouncements for gay and lesbian couples.

He can't be too pleased by this...

Dang, I hate that Josh Harris is married. He would have been perfect for Sally Mally!

It could have been the first FJ-arranged marriage!

If I recall my days of following the no more dating doctrine, not only is he married, he and his wife wrote a book about the courtship phase, and then getting through the first few years of marriage.

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.
