Dobson resigns.

James Dobson has stepped down as chairman of Focus on the Family. Says Time:

Daly said there is no timetable for Dobson to leave the radio program, and the group will “look for the next voice for the next generation” while Dobson remains on the air.

That will likely mean not one person behind the microphone but several speaking on their respective areas of expertise, Daly said. The organization, anticipating a post-Dobson era, for several years has tried out different voices on the broadcast and in giving media interviews on hot-button social issues.

I’ve never paid attention to what Dobson says unless one of his comments got picked up by major media. But his organization is important, and its leadership, whoever they may be, could have a huge role in shaping American culture, particularly in the church.

With that in mind, what should a “post-era Dobson” F.o.t.F. look like? Any suggestions? Anything you think they should avoid?

    Hopefully whoever takes over will “Focus on the Cross” instead of of putting the focus on messed up humans.

    It wouldn’t hurt for the next person to lay off the politics either.

    Agreed…stick to servant leadership and equipping families rather than pushing a political agenda.

    FotF has rightfully earned the respect of millions of (mostly) Americans…hopefully the new leadership can convince them to start truly BEING the church that changes the world for Jesus.

    Great post.
