Calvary Chapel, Bill Hybels, and Jesuit Mysticism

Who has bewitched you?

Roger Oakland of Understand the Times International says that Calvary Chapel has a new found connection with Bill Hybels, one of the architects of the seeker-sensitive movement. Oakland wonders how big of an impact this union will have. There’s a program Willow Creek implemented by Bill Hybels’ son-in-law Aaron Niequist called The Practice that Oakland sees as “the epitome of all that is emergent.” (please see, Willow Creek’s “The Practice” blends New Age & Catholic Mysticism)

What about Calvary Chapel’s connection with The Practice and contemplative prayer? Will this connect Calvary Chapel to the spiritual formation practices promoted by the Jesuits? So many questions…
