Wednesday, June 13, 2007 AD I'd Like to Say Something Nice About Joel Garver I not only watched the live webcast of the PCAGA presentation of the FV/NPP report, I hung out in the chat room, too. Present and participating were some I recognized -- Joel Garver, John Owen Butler, Larson Hicks -- and some I didn't -- some other sensible folks, an RTS student who confessed he was playing hooky from class, and some folks who appeared to be playing hooky from junior high school. When Dr. Sproul the More Venerable had his turn at the mic, one of the junior high delinquents said something sassy, and Dr. Garver, with his characteristic gracious evenhandedness, basically told the punk to show some respect for a man who had done so much to winsomely make the Reformed faith known among the broader Evangelical world. Lots will be written about what happened today, but I didn't want that little exchange to go unnoted. I was sad about the vote, but I was blessed by the display of gentlemanly Christian behavior. Thank you, Joel.
