UCG Titanic - Too Important To Fail? Part 2


Which one of the members of the United International Association under present consideration will become the next UCG President (or, more to the point, next Captain of the UCG Titanic)?

It's anybody's guess.

In the meantime, besides selecting his successor-in-interest, Roy Holliday has been busy with Leon Walker, reshuffuling some of the few folding deck chairs remaining, as the band plays from the approved music list.

Remember, first-class ministry cruise passengers are the first to board the lifeboats, before everyone else goes overboard.

Stay Calm...

Changes in Latin American Regional Administration


We are very sorry to have to make the following announcement. With the authorization of the Council of Elders, Leon Walker is being replaced in his administrative and pastoral duties associated with the Church’s activities in the Latin American region.


Last week, Mr. Walker was requested to come to the home office for a meeting with the interim president and with the chairman of the Council ethics committee (who is also the Ministerial Services operation manager), to discuss certain e-mail communications between him and the Spanish-speaking ministers he oversees. Mr. Walker chose not to attend and instead left on a three-week trip to Latin America.


On June 20, Mr. Walker was directed to discontinue his trip and return to the home office in Cincinnati to review and respond to this information with the interim president and ethics committee chairman and members of the Council of Elders. The Council had directed me as interim president of the Church and chairman of the Council to seek resolution of these issues in the planned meetings.


On June 21, Mr. Walker replied stating that he refused to travel to the Church’s home office for the purpose of participating in these meetings. He was subsequently relieved of his duties. At this time, Mr. Walker remains an employee of the Church and, given his change in responsibilities, has been directed to return for review of his duties.


A new regional coordinator for the work of the Church in Latin American areas will be named shortly. Mario Seiglie, who served our brethren in Latin America for two decades and who now will shortly begin service on the Council of Elders, will be traveling to the Latin American region to meet with our ministers and members there.


It remains my fervent hope that we can all remember that “God has called us to peace” (1 Corinthians 7:15) and as recorded in 2 Peter 3:9: “The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (New International Version).



Your continued prayers for true unity and peace are much appreciated.


Roy Holladay, Interim President and Chairman

From what I've heard, the troops in Mexico do not want anyone but Walker. More unrest for the UCG.

Here's evidence to back Steve's claim:

The UCG Hierarchy is trying to do damage control aboard the Titanic. Look who's calling the kettle black.

Old wineskins hold aged wine quite well, but can never bear the fruit new wine requires in order to bloom.

I see a lot of "Churches of God" all fighting, in one way or another, to get the former members of WWCOG to become a part of their group. Kind of like kids on a playground wanting everyone to be on "their" side. Most, while quoting all kinds of scripture to make their respective cases, seem to have forgotten one key scripture: God is not the author of confusion. As I researched the history of Mr. Armstrong, Rader, Joe Jr., Joe Sr., et al, I have uncovered some unfortunate behaviors that have absolutely nothing to do with God, His Kingdom, or Christ's return. There is quite a lot of MAN-ufactured concepts and delusions of power. And all of this is really about power, isn't it?

The UCG has selected Dennis Luker as the new president.

Last I heard, last week, he was packing his bags and selling things off. They may (or may not) hold a going away party on the Sabbath next weekend.

Time will tell where things will go, but it just strikes me how very OLD everyone is getting to be in United.

Steve,

Your pdf attachments didn't make it through. You can email them to ambassador.reports@gmail.com

Thanks,

Stan,

It doesn't make any difference. It's all old news now. Anyone can download it from Ambassador Reports.

I think, in the end the UCG will start to disintegrate in the same manner of the WCG in the 90's. Just like all the rest of these COGs we should judge them by their fruits, and discord/unrest seem to be falling from the UCG tree with great frequency.
