Here is another valuable perspective on the kerfuffle at Starr King School for the Ministry. See this previous post for more.
I am not talking about the burden of guilt from revealing confidential materials, though you may indeed feel guilt about that. Whether you felt it was justified or not, you did cross a line when you revealed them. But the break in covenant that occurred when you crossed that line could have been restored if you had stepped forward sooner.
Like I’ve read elsewhere, it’s not the initial cost so much as the upkeep.
