Default Dr. Charles Stanley

I don't know if anyone else noticed this or not but on this past week's In Touch broadcast Dr. Stanley sat down to preach. It did not look like he had hurt his foot (etc) or anything like that. Does anyone here know why he was sitting down? Is his health failing? Or is it a new style his is trying out?

I was shocked because he usually has so much energy.

I am not a Charles Stanley fan; however, I was watching him last weekend. What I got out of his explanation was that he had fallen, but not really hurt. I don't know whether he was preaching at the time of his fall or not. He said that those around him had requested that he sit during most of his sermons to prevent him from falling again.

Others may have more and better information that I.

Hopefully it is nothing serious.

He is 77 years old. Hope it's nothing serious as well.

I like Dr. Stanley and had seen him sitting to preach and wondered the same thing about his health.

Dr. Stanley has been sitting for the last month or so. He had hurt one foot and at first it was wrapped or in a support of some sort. I do not remember whether it was due to injury or needed surgery. I watch him often, as he is solid in the Word and very insightful.

He is also divorced from his first wife and, I think,remarried to another.

This subject has probably been around a thread or two, but what about that? Does it not fly in the face of (IOW) violate the clear criterion which qualify a man for Pastoral service?

Dr. Stanley has not remarried. According to the bylaws of the church, he must resign if he remarries. I used to be a member there years ago.

and what does that have to do with his foot problems.

I don't think that he has remarried either, but am not sure what this has to do with him sitting to preach. He is just aging.
