Breaking: Pope Benedict Resigns

This morning the world learned that Pope Benedict is resigning from his post at the end of February. In a letter dated February 10, 2013 he stated:

…in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.

In this Ministry Briefing conversation we discuss how this will affect all of Christendom, and what the evangelical community could learn from this. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the importance of this historic event, and how significant you think it will be to the protestant community.
