    Or he was there as a guest of one of his congregation. ;)

    CRPC is a huge church. I would guess they pay him fairly well.

    Looks like he was in New York as chaplain to the "New Canaan Society" — "a social community of men committed to hospitality, connections, companionship, unique customs, company and the fulfillment of the two great commandments: love God and love your neighbor."

    Dinners are 18 to 40 dollars at Café Boulud. Not too bad for Manhattan.

    The founder of this New Canaan Society "man clan" is a former general partner at Goldman Sachs.

    I'm not sure I understand the purpose of this thread. Is it to denigrate this pastor? To question his integrity? To stir up stuff? Or am I off-base, and the intentions here are noble?


    It would seem that the OP ought to contact this individual and ask him directly, if he has questions like this...instead of airing them out on the BB.

    But maybe I'm reading into this something that isn't there. If that's the case, please set me straight.

    I looked at that too. Hubby and I go to a great restaurant in Mystic Connecticut and it's certainly not cheap but we save up for it each year. Fortunately we don't drink but it's still usually $100 for just the two of us! SO not what we're used to. We went out for Valentine's Day and spent just $35 for our dinner with tons of leftovers (BBQ) and that's much more like what we like to spend.

    Annsni, how do other diners react when you announce to them that you are in the ministry?

    Seems like Cindy Adams was exaggerating the "very high-class" nature of the joint where she and pal Barabara Walters were so suprised to encounter a clergyman:laugh:

    Since OP didn't say anything, I was wondering too. BUT what I find odd is that Tullian introduced himself to Walters???? The story makes it sound like he just walked up and said, "Hi, my name is . . . "

    Now...I'll often witness in a restaurant when I can...but I didn't know we were supposed to stand up in our chair and say, "Your attention please! This is a $50 and I am in the ministry!!"

    Thanks for briefing me on proper protocol. :D


    I repeat...I'm not sure I understand the purpose of this thread. Is it to denigrate this pastor? To question his integrity? To stir up stuff? Or am I off-base, and the intentions here are noble?

    :confused:

    It's just an interesting account of a chance meeting between a pastor and two prominent journalists.

    Never had an issue at all. Of course I think we only mentioned it once in all the years we've been going there. We struck up a conversation with a couple at the next table and of course the "what do you do" question came up.

    OK then. My apologies for the insinuation for anything otherwise.
