I remember a thread here somewhere where a letter to the body of elders was posted and elders were to read part of the letter asking who might have experience or training in video media, graphic design, etc. then on a separate page NOT TO BE READ to the congregation was for elders to make discreet inquiries as to any who might have legal knowledge, experience or expertise.
Well, in view of all this new kafluffle about branch closures, building work suspended, Bethel layoffs, etc., it really makes me wonder now just what the heck is going on. Has the GB been shafted by their own legal counsel or financial advisors? Could they have put their trust in the son of earthling man (worldly counsel?) and are now reaping what they have sown?
I am also noting the really weird behaviours recently from both Sam Herd and Anthony Morris in their broadcast talks from different months, though very recent. Both of them had such similar demeanours -- defeated, tired, dispirited, uncomfortable.... There was no excitement in their manner, they did not sound encouraged or encouraging.
And there is also the issue of payouts to victims of child abuse and child sexual abuse... and now questions as to their charitable status...
It all makes you wonder, What the heck is really going on?? Is the money well really drying up?
I mean, we really don't know, we can only speculate, it is all so very weird.
