Evangelical leaders are meeting this week at Wheaton College to try and figure out post-Trump how to make evangelicalism respectable again. Good luck with that!

1. Pretty telling that Michael Gerson pens this in response to the Wheaton gathering, but makes no mention of the Lynchburg revival.
Evangelical elite lifting up disaffected evangelical elite (and also, as mentioned, Wheaton grads like Gerson REALLY LIKE talking about Wheaton). https://t.co/zT0tkJlRkq

.@MLabberton kicking off the evangelical consultation at Wheaton College: "The central crisis facing us is that the gospel has been betrayed and shamed by an evangelicalism that has violated its own moral and spiritual integrity. It’s not a crisis from outside but from within."

Apparently the Wheaton Consultation of nice evangelical bigs has begun. I predict a 100% chance of chinstroking with scattered "ummms" and warm hugs, a continual downpour of academic concepts, a flood of winsome-yet-concerned words, plus a steady wind from the east.

Harvard is the Harvard of Christian colleges. Wheaton is the Harvard of evangelical Christian colleges.
