    Good for him. I believe he is seventy-two, he has definitely earned the right to slow down a little if he so chooses.

    I think its a wise and timely move. He will still keep importance and be present for advice and direction while others are screened and groomed and attention turns to see if God has ordained another to assume this calling. May God continue to bless him and us with his presence and good advice.

    The newspaper article stated that his radio program may end up with several hosts, each in an areal of expertise.

    He probably has enough tin cans buried in the back yard to live like a king.

    May God's richest blessings be upon Dr. Dobson and FOTF! :applause:

    I doubt that any one person and organization has done more to promote and defend the Biblical truths and values of God's first institution--the family--than have Dr. Dobson and Focus on the Family.

    I wish him many blessings and thank God for all of the years dedicated to family ministry.

    We just finished up the Focus on Marriage seminar given by simulcast from FOTF today. It was wonderful.

    Was this the one that used Gary Thomas? Thomas says on his site that we should be married to God. I find that weird; reminds me of the Catholic mystics (which he is into, btw).

    That's weird. I didn't hear anything like that (but I wasn't in for the whole thing because I was doing the food for 200 people. LOL). Does it have anything to do with being the bride of Christ??

    No, it's not about the church being the bride of Christ.

    I am not saying he uses this for his marriage seminars but he has it on his site. I think it comes from his book, Sacred Pathways.

    He says he has discovered "9 sacred pathways" or 9 "spiritual temperments." Why 9? How did he discover them? That's my question.

    He says this on the same page:

    http://www.garythomas.com/index.php?option=com_seminars&key=Seminars_Sacredpathway

    I have concerns with this because he also favorably refers to a woman who gets into some real mystical stuff with sex and God.

    Thank you Dr. Dobson for allowing the Lord to use you greatly in His ministry to families.
