Crystal Cathedral's senior priest, Sheila Coleman was angry during an interview on Sunday, after gossips circulated throughout the Press and the Web that her father, renowned televangelist, Robert H. Schuller, was resigning.
She said, "Dad is not retiring. I told the congregation that Dad's role would not be changing and mine would not be changing".
The media tornado began, when the Orange County Register accounted that the 83-year-old Schuller declared his exit, during the morning service at the Garden Grove cathedral.
The Associated Press took to the Register narrative. And within no time, several newspapers and media sites picked up the AP write-up and Twitter was bustling with the news that the man, who formed the kingdom behind the well-liked weekly Christian TV show "Hour of Power”, was moving ahead. Wikipedia included an entry that Schuller was stepping down.
But Coleman, who has been serving up as the megachurch's informal senior priest for the last year, said that the only alteration was that her position had been made formal by the Reformed Church in America.
She said that she attentively enlightened the parishioners that the amendment was mainly emblematic, "just an affirmation and celebration from the denomination".
