Apparently this was supposed to be the FINAL Crystal Cathedral service but for some reason it was pushed back a
week, so it became
the penul mate service
.
61

This answers the ques on why the most-frequent & beloved Crystal Cathedral guest singers,

Tom Tipton

& Nita Whitaker, sang at the penul mate service, not the nal service. Above is a pic of pastor Jim Kok (le ) with
a member on the penul mate church bulle n.

8/23/13 re MEMORIAL STONES @ CHRIST CATHEDRAL,(Ive been keeping an eye on the new Christ Cathedral &
their progress on the arboretum rehab...which is not yet complete...hope for the best ! But also I recently heard
they plan to remove the stones from the walk-of-life (see below) which is a shame given the promises made by
Schuller that they would last for so much longer , but at the same me I found it sad that Schuller didnt take be er
safeguards about protec ng the stones from the elements & foot trac (a simple sheet of plexi-glass might have
preserved them ) because many of them are seriously "faded" out, so if the catholics dont remove them, they
would need to somehow restore them if they wanted to make the property look as "good as new" search:crystal

2/11/14 RIP,ARVELLA SCHULLER,84, (Thoughts &Prayers for Arvellas husband, Robert Schuller Sr, the founder of
the Crystal Cathedral,for whom I s ll have much respect & admira on despite the way the CC fell apart in the
end...perhaps not due to any fault of his own... & for all the Schullers regardless of how one analyzes the demise of
the CC...my nal feelings are sadness for the whole family even though they may actually be glad,in part,to have the
CC o of their hands..it just became too much & too big for them to handle; yet a lot of people thought they were
inves ng in something that would last "forever", thats the saddest part of it. Nonetheless,se ng that aside we
extend our condolences to the Schuller family & thank Arvella "for the memories" & the spiritual inspira on. She
was from my tradi on: the Dutch reformed church,..and from Iowa (where I myself was also born)...and I became
somewhat part of the CC journey in 1984 when I was a senior in high school...; search:, robert h. Schuller,hour of

this may be two dierent le ers, because the top envelope has a return address of margaret, whereas the bo om
le er is signed "Peg"...she seems impressed by Obama...which is surprising because most Crystal Cathedral supports are more conserva ve and would be less suppor ve of the democrat party, at least thats my impression, but
there may be more than meets the eye about the CC audience and congrega on. For me, however, I liked the CC
because I believed it was conserva ve , even if, in fact, maybe it wasnt so much behind the scenes.

RIP 9/20/07 I JUST NOTICED this re KEN LEESTMA "news from Hope College" (2015-02-24 08:51)
I remember Ken from Crystal Cathedral days.
Always friendly:
"Kenneth N. Leestma 52 of Seal Beach, Calif., died on
Thursday, Sept. 20, 2007. He was 81.
He was born in Holland, Mich., the rst child of Peter
and Martha Leestma, and grew up in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Following high school, he served in the Army Air Corps
as sta sergeant in Japan.
A er the war, he graduated from Hope and from
Western Theological Seminary.
He was then ordained and called to be the founding
pastor of Lincoln Avenue Community Church in Pomona,
Calif. This marked the beginning of his y-three-year
career as a pastor to congrega ons across the na on
and the world.
Following his ministry in Pomona, a er overseeing the
building of a new sanctuary there, he was called to
Bethel Reformed Church, Sheldon, Iowa. His family now
numbered seven.
In 1966 with wife Be e, David, Pamela, Daniel, Mary and
Mark, he moved to Bradenton, Fla., serving Bayshore
Gardens Reformed Church. A new educa onal building
was completed there just before he accepted a call from
El Dorado Park Community Church, Long Beach, Calif., to
serve as a co-pastor with his colleague and childhood
friend William Miedema 50. Being back in California
seemed to complete his coast-to-coast ministry.
In 1975, he was called to New Life Community Church in
Artesia as senior pastor. This was the church, formerly
called Artesia Reformed, who rst invited the Arcadian
Quartet, represen ng Hope College, to sing. That
invita on gave the quartet singers, Kenneth Leestma,
William Miedema 50, Warren Hietbrink 47 and Robert H.
525

Schuller 47 their rst taste of California. All four began


ministries in California, Kenneth being the rst.
Kenneth rst re red in 1991, but was asked by the
Reformed Church in America to serve churches in need
of his pastoral exper se in northern California and as far
as Bahrain before he accepted the call to become the
pastor of congrega onal care at the Crystal Cathedral.
This in many ways was the posi on of his life me.
Working with a ministry that he knew so well from its
very beginning, being near his family, and sharing the
joys of ministry longevity with his long me friend Robert
H. Schuller and so many other colleagues, became the
providen al nale of his ministry and life.
Most notable among his many accomplishments, Dr. Ken,
as he was aec onately called, earned his doctoral
degree in pastoral ministry and was a president of The
Reformed Church in America (RCA). He represented the
RCA in Japan and India and provided leadership in the
RCA Classis and Synod throughout his en re ministry. He
also served on the Words of Hope radio ministry board
for eight years.
At the memorial service, David Leestma said of his
father, "Dr. Ken made more hospital calls than a medical
doctor and he made friends with everyone he met. A
man of extraordinary humbleness, integrity, kindness
and love for people, he modeled every biblical gi of the
Spirit more o en than anyone I ever knew. A gentle giant
of a man who will never leave our memory."
He served Hope as a member of the board of trustees
and was presented with a Dis nguished Alumni Award in
1986.
Survivors include his wife, Elizabeth (Be e) Leestma; ve
children, David 73 (Cathy Schaub 73) Leestma, Pam
Leestma 75, Dan Leestma, Mary Leestma (Jack) Tacke ,
and Mark (Selina) Leestma; and seven grandchildren,
including John (Ka e Wierenga 01) Leestma."

(2015-04-02 10:20)

4/2/15 BREAKING NEWS,ROBERT SCHULLER,RIP:


""Hour of Power" televangelist dies":
Robert Schuller (Sr),the Crystal Cathedral, & the Hour of Power had a tremendous impact on my life whether I wanted
it or not,due to the fact that my dad ( & us kids & mother) moved from Michigan to California in 1984 to work for
the Crystal Cathedral ministries. My dad took the posi on of director & pastor of pastoral care,occupying the 10thoor oce of the tower of hope.I was a senior in high school at the me. Later in life on my own I found my own
sense of iden ca on with Robert Schullers ministry style,but ini ally it was simply "inherited" so to speak,whether
I liked it or not.And there were mes I didnt want it or like it. There were pros & cons being associated with the
CC and all its "glamour" in the 80s. There were those who called Schuller & televangelism a great thing,then there
were others who mocked & ridiculed & cri cized it, & even today you hear pastors who use the word "televangelism"
as a synonym for materialism & the so-called "prosperity gospel" etc even while they themselves are also on tv &
now online as well, & doing quite well,if not be er,for themselves. In many ways it is a cheapshot & used to deect
scru ny of themselves. Nonetheless,when I later returned to southern California & began my own ministry while
studying in seminary I also came even closer in alia on with the CC ministries,albeit never came on board formally,
& never took any compensa on from them,other than inspira on. I also iden ed partly with the senior Schullers
midwest roots (I myself was born in Iowa & grew up in Michigan,altho not on a farm). Its hard not to admire what the
senior Schuller accomplished in terms of building a ministry in such a spectacular manner & inspiring so many people.
Towards the end of the ministry (at the crystal cathedral) & the subsequent bankruptcy,the family ma ers convoluted
everything, & "nepo sm" turned out to be the "fatal aw" of the opera on,but the groundwork he laid lives on both
as the opera on of a new ministry at the site (ie the Roman Catholic diocese of orange) and also at the new loca on
where the Hour of Power lives on. Hence,he planted a mustard seed & it bloomed, & a kernel of wheat must die for
a new plant or plants to blossom. I will have more to say later. RIP,ROBERT H. SCHULLER ,see more at
