Shortly before my exit a youngish elder who recently came from Brooklyn bethel commented to me how the local elder meetings were like the wild wild west. According to him in Brooklyn there was a very definite way to handle things. He seemed to imply the Brooklyn bethel way was better.
After seeing GB member Splaines video about how elders could come to an united decision I was reminded of this.
I had to wonder about this then and I wonder now. Would decisions that effect people personally be better handled by local elders or GB elders? Which would be more compassionate? Or fair or proper? Who really would be the better judges and shepherds? Thoughts?
