Well, it didn’t work out with his son, Robert A. Schuller, so now Robert H. Schuller is looking to his daughter, Dr. Sheila Schuller Coleman, to help direct his ministry. He made the announcement to his 10,000 member church on Sunday, and confirmed it with a public announcement.
I guess Schuller wants to keep “the Kingdom that Robert built” all in the family. I bet this makes Thanksgiving dinner awkward this year.
In case you’re wondering, there’s little chance that the doctrine or methods coming out of the Crystal Cathedral will change. If that were a threat, Schuller would never have considered his daughter to take his place. He’s got to keep his vision alive, and to do that, he has to replace himself with someone who will carry the torch. It didn’t work with his son, and I’m not thinking his daughter will make the same mistake with her brother as the cautionary tale.
But, then again, time will tell.
