We’re just about to go on our Youth Camp. As part of our sung worship we were going to be introducing the song “Healer” written by Mike Guglielmucci. The song fitted alongside his inspiring story of praising God through the horror of terminal cancer.
I was gutted for our youth band to hear of the announcement made by the Australian Christian Church that Mr Guglielmucci is a fraud (although relieved we had picked this up before we went to camp).
It seems the Pastor of AOG youth church PlanetShakers never had cancer at all, but lied to his family, church and millions around the world for reasons best known to himself. There is lots of information out there about the situation, so I won’t try and cover any of it here. Check out the wikipedia page and Australian newspaper article for more details.
Thanks to Jon for pointing this one out.
