Parishioners have filed a lawsuit to stop the installation of the Rev. Dr. Brad R. Braxton, who they say will receive more than $600,000 a year and will shift the church’s mission.
He’s a former preaching professor of mine from Vanderbilt. And I really have no words to say except that I often feel very guilty about my ~$50,000 total compensation package – especially when so many people are looking for work.
