After the sermon was posted online, Karen responded with an email communicating her desire to meet with Lead Pastors Matt Chandler and Josh Patterson. Matt and Josh started the conversation by telling Karen that they were not there to defend the actions of The Village but to ask forgiveness. Matt and Josh specifically told Karen, after further review of her situation, that she did have biblical grounds for divorce or annulment, that she should have been released from Covenant Membership as she requested and that she should not have been put under church discipline.
Matt and Josh reiterated that they were not there to defend the actions of The Village but simply to repent and hear from Karen directly. She graciously accepted the apology and extended forgiveness.
This beautiful exchange set the tone for the rest of the day, which was spent trying to unwind stories, clarify confusion and discuss next steps. By the end of the meeting, Karen was satisfied that we had heard all of her concerns and was eager to see us follow through on some specific items. In the days following the meeting with Karen, Josh and Brian Miller met with Dallas campus elders and staff to further examine our interactions with Karen and Jordan in a new light.

As a result of these conversations, The Village Church is taking the following actions: We are apologizing more specifically to Karen in front of you, our members.
While Karen is no longer a member, we are doing so with her permission and cooperation. Some of the information in our original Covenant Member email sent on May 23 was insensitive and did not reflect the fuller picture we have learned through our subsequent meetings and conversations. We are sorry for our error and how it affected Karen. While the gospel is certainly for all sinners and grace is available for Jordan, we believe that the nature of his sin requires treatment that is beyond what The Village has been able to offer—and we should have recognized our limitations earlier.
We will vigilantly follow the recommendations of this counselor regarding necessary next steps. We reached out to several individuals at SIM, including the president, to apologize for times when we did not fully heed their counsel and were perceived to be threatening.
As we communicated in our previous emails, we believe that the policies and procedures that are currently in place at The Village Church to protect children and families are strong. However, that belief has not stopped us from diligently moving forward with a thorough assessment of our abuse prevention and reporting processes across all campuses.
In the months to come, experts will be analyzing everything we do in this regard to ensure that we implement best practices across the board. The elders have also already had several meetings, both small and large, to review our current practice and procedures. There will be definite changes to our system based on these meetings, including a much more patient process before a member enters formal church discipline. We also want to recognize that there is a time and place for specialized treatment that goes beyond the kind of care that we, or even a qualified biblical counselor, can offer.
We are working on these new policies and procedures and will update you when they are complete. As a result of this divine reconciliation, we have also been entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation 2 Cor.
We are also called to an ongoing ethic of confession and repentance. Reconciliation is often hard and painful, but it is always beautiful. Thank you for your patience and grace in this time.
Matt LeBlanc: Joey Tribbiani
It is an honor and joy to serve you. Statement from Karen Hinkley As I laid in bed the night of December 16th, I wondered if I would wake up the next day and find myself in the middle of a crisis of faith. I believe that the only feasible explanation for this is that God had a plan for me that required me to trust Him. In His goodness, and in answer to the prayers of many of His people on my behalf, He has sustained my faith during the most trying of times, and He is now bringing this chapter to a close for me in the most beautiful of ways.
I woke up to an email from Matt Chandler the morning of May 27th.Matt Chandler on Finding 'The One'
He apologized and sought forgiveness for not reaching out to me sooner, and he asked if I would consider sitting down with him and Josh Patterson face-to-face, with the sole purpose of hearing from me about the hurt I had experienced at the hands of The Village Church and what they could have done better.
Naturally, I was skeptical at first, and I wrestled with whether I could trust his motives due to the timing of the email. My God, it's like Sophie's Choice. Joey, if you had to give up sex or food, which would you pick? I don't know it's too hard. Come on, you have to answer. I want girls on bread!
We could eat the wax. Oh great, food with hair on it. No, not the used wax. Because THAT would be crazy. I make low-budget adult films. Try telling that to my Uncle Vinnie. What happened to him?
Nothing; he just really believes that. See, I told you. Less than a hundred steps from our place to here.

Now, I've never been able to cry as an actor, so if I'm in a scene where I have to cry, I cut a hole in my pocket, take a pair of tweezers, and just start pulling. Or ah, or, let's say I wanna convey that I've just done something evil.
That would be the basic 'I have a fishhook in my eyebrow and I like it' [Does it by raising one eyebrow, and showing off the pretend fishhook] Joey: Okay, let's say I've just gotten bad news, well all I do there is try and divide by And that's how it's done.
