Some members of Mars Hills Bible Church in Grandville were in tears Sunday as they wished the best for Rob Bell.

Bell said he is settling in Los Angeles to work on a TV drama based loosely on his life. He also plans to write more books and speak around the country.

Bell and his wife were presented with a book of stories and good wishes Sunday collected from people who have witnessed his sermons or heard them online.

Bell is the author of “Love Wins,” which questions traditional Christian beliefs about hell.
