Famous quotes from Dr. Robert H. Schuller
Founding pastor of the Crystal Cathedral
“Are you disappointed, discouraged and discontented with your present level of success? Are you secretly dissatisfied with your present status? Do you want to become a better and more beautiful person than you are today? Would you like to be able to really learn how to be proud of yourself and still not lose genuine humility? Then start dreaming! It?s possible! You can become the person you have always wanted to be!”

Dateline: February 3, 2016 – Dr and Mrs Schuller's home has been officially put on the real estate market for $1,890,000.00. It's in the multiple listing service for Orange County realtor association. The pictures of this home are breathtaking.
Dateline: February 16, 2016 Thoughts on the Barn wood background: Completely unsuitable for church decor let alone a television production set unless it’s a set for “HeeHaw!”
The same leadership which had the unpopular “barn wood” backdrop installed during the misguided Mark Bass production days has repeatedly promised the Shepherd’s Grove congregation that the the tacky wood backdrop wood “look” would be removed. The first mention in the fall of 2014 has now stretched well over a year.
However, the buss is that the leadership is finally making good on their word and that the “barn wood” will finally soon be removed in favor of a more appropriate look for our church and the Hour of Power. This positive decision is all most likely being made possible the the recent million dollar donation by Jim and Susan Dawson.
At last, a wise move which will dignify the look of our world class choir and dignify the appearance of our world class orchestra and most of all, dignify the décor of the pulpit so the Bobby Schuller won’d be lost in the dark wood background.
This is great news for our church and the Hour of Power making the production more suitable for television broadcasting.
Dateline: February 20, 2019 – Posted: 12:30 PM PST – We are hearing our pastors are shaking their heads in wonder as to why the second service isn’t growing. It’s been eleven years since Bobby Schuller started “The Gathering” with around 200 persons in attendance which eventually had to merge with Chad Blake’s “Tree of Life” to stay alive.
Mystified, the pastors are now trying to make the second service more like the first Hour of Power service format with the exception of having praise and worship music (not including Don Neuen and the Hour of Power Choir).
If the pastors want to fill up the second service, they simply need to duplicate the first service with Don Neuen and the world class Hour of Power Choir.
Dateline: February 28, 2016 – Posted: 11:49 AM PST – Published in the Sunday, February 28, 2016 Church Bulletin in the Transitions Section, “Ruby Madison, mother of [Pastor] Geoff Madison, grandmother of Hillary Blake and [mother-
Our condolences to Pastor Geoff Madison, Hillary Blake and Pastor Chad Blake. Our prayers are with you.
Jennifer lost her 5 1/2 year battle with liver cancer on Thursday Feb. 25, 2016 at St Joseph's Hospital in Orange. She was 38yrs old. Jenny's first job was at the Crystal Cathedral where she literally grew-
were her sisters who tenderly, patiently spent many hours helping care for her and making her laugh. She is survived by her parents, Bob & Christine Behrens and her sisters, Becky and Molly. A memorial service will be held Sat. March 12, 11AM at Shepherd's Grove Church.

Dateline: March 11, 2016 – Jennifer Stebbens, former manager of the Crystal Cathedral Bookstore, lost her 5 ½ year battle with cancer. Obituary below.
Frederick Swann Organ Recital Friday evening draws attendance by old Crystal Cathedral friends including congregation, former members of Fred’s choir, and former cathedral organists.
Not only did Fred deliver an outstanding performance but one interspersed with his wry humor and wit.
At the close of the concert, as expected, Fred got a standing ovation that would not quit without demanding one more number. For his encore, he led those in attendance with the singing of the hymn, “Holy God We Praise Thy Name.” Prior to playing the hymn, Fred couldn’t resist relating the story of a little girl in the front row at one of his performances in which the audience demanded an encore. He heard the little girl blurt out, “Now look what you’ve done, you made him play again.”
Dateline: May 1, 2016 – Posted: 4:25 PM PDT – We are beginning to get more emails concerning the status of the backdrop now infamoustly dubbed “The Barnwood.” Periodically, we hear “The Barnwood” is coming down. Then a little bit later, we hear “The Barnwood” is staying up. Interspersed with, “Is the Barnwood coming down or staying up,” are emails wanting to know, “I heard Hour of Power letters were being nailed to “The Barnwood,” and then “What happened to the letters on The Barnwood? There’re not there anymore!
Here is the answer. We, at Pens-
