    Do you know the "Crystal Cathedral"?

    Have you actually seen "Crystal Cathedral"?
    Is there any person who attended worship of this church?

    Is there any person who lives in California and preached to that church?

    Well, Such a Great Church does not exist in Japan.
    How are you valuating Dr. Robert H. Schuller?

    I have seen it on TV. I have never set a foot in California.

    Seen it on TV a million times... Should be the steel and glass cathedral.

    I've seen it several times, as I live 20 minutes from the location. The church is currently experiencing some problems in their leadership and have seen their income drop. They recently sold their retreat, Rancho Capistrano and canceled their "Glory of Easter" production due to financial concerns. Rumor has it that there was a split between the Schullers regarding succession in the ministry...

    Yes I heard that too, the family business wasn't doing so hot.

    I walked through the structure several years ago while on vacation is California, it is an interesting building. I wouldn't want to connected to a place like that.

    I has the feel of the structure having more value then the people that assemble there

    Reminds me of the food court area in the mall and the way they try to bring in all that natural light with tons of glass.

    More than a rumor:

    Robert Schuller's
    son leaves Crystal
    Cathedral Updated 12/16/2008 10:23 AM GARDEN GROVE, California (AP) — The Rev. Robert
    A. Schuller has resigned as senior pastor of the
    Crystal Cathedral in southern California two months
    after his father yanked him from the church's long-
    running Christian television program, Hour of
    Power . Schuller, who resigned last month, plans to start his
    own ministry, according to a press release on the
    Crystal Cathedral's website. Juan Carlos Ortiz,
    founder of the Crystal Cathedral Hispanic Ministry,
    will take over as senior pastor until a permanent
    replacement is found. "It is expected that Robert will make an
    announcement soon regarding plans for his new
    ministry," the Crystal Cathedral said in the press
    release. "The leadership and congregation wishes
    him all the best as his plans unfold." The Crystal Cathedral, with its glittering landmark
    megachurch, was founded by Schuller's father, the
    Rev. Robert H. Schuller, who upon arriving in
    Southern California in 1955 gained attention when
    he began preaching from a drive-in movie theater in
    Orange County.

    I heard Schuller say that he got approval of the architectural plans from the Pope!
