Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel announced this morning that he has lung cancer. He also said he has never smoked a day in his life, and he's scheduled for surgery next week.I wish him the best. He's certainly had a big impact on churches, starting Calvary Chapel in 1965 as pretty much a hippie church, and expanding to a worldwide association of like-minded fellowships. He's probably more responsible than anyone for the expansion of contemporary music into worship services (but I forgive him for that - not a big fan of contemporary Christian music, as anyone who is a regular reader will know).
