Shane Hipps on Rob Bell’s Departure

Shane is a long-time friend of mine, and the teaching pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan:

When I accepted the call to become the co-teacher with a beloved friend it was a strange experience.  We were both so used to being alone in leadership that we didn’t realize the unexpected gift that comes with having a partner.  It was a fantastic experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Rob is almost entirely ego-less and extremely generous in sharing his platform with others.  I experienced an incredible hospitality from him.  And it gave me a chance to build a really beautiful relationship with a community that I love.

In South American I’m told there is an expression, one ox can do the work of one.  But two oxes can do the work of ten.  That was true for me.
