Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigns in felony plea deal after affair with bodyguard

Well, it’s over ….. or is it? On the way downtown yesterday, I felt no joy in learning that former Mayor Barry was about to resign, only sadness for our city, her family, the Forrest family, etc, but also relief. I think it was pretty clear that there must have been a lot more to come out that drove her to make a deal with the DA and ‘take her punishment’ such as it is.

The statement that she made was all about her and not once did she express any regret about what she had done and put those families and our city through.  It is my hope and prayer that at some point she will truly come to know REAL repentance (not just regret) and experience the forgiveness that only Jesus offers to each of us. She is a smart, gifted woman, who is still fairly young and could have a productive future.

We need to be praying for Mayor David Briley as he unexpectedly steps into this position.
