I just wanted to add my 2 Cents. .....you know the famous line in Animal Farm "all animals are equal, some are more equal than others"
Well with the Years of service and the Special connotation given to those of Status, why do the rest tolarate this behaviour? is it really Christ Like to base the inviation on who has served longer in the pecking order, or who is a pioneer, or elder etc? I think Jesus would be appalled.
This is really a way to get the Oldest and most special to give more $$$$ think about it, more cha-ching in for the WEEKEND, a special we are tying in all the Assembly Halls, what a hoot that will be.
And if you were NOT "LUCKY" enough to be invited, maybe you can feel better to work on your status for next time.
Gimme a break! I am sick of it people.
