North American Division Meetings: Day 2
by Paul Richardson, 27 October 2017
The second day of the North American Division’s Year-end Meetings has continued with ongoing excitement for the grand opening of the Division’s new headquarters..
“Never forget the little church. They gave you this building. They pay your salary. You are here to resource them and the conferences and unions in your care.”
Then as if he had perceived an over-inflated euphoria among the group with the beauty of the building and the independence from the General Conference 12 miles down the road, Brad went on to say, “Never forget the little church. They gave you this building. They pay your salary. You are here to resource them and the conferences and unions in your care.”
- Believe in your place in the house of God. Read Ephesians and discover in a fresh way God’s vision for the church, that we are brought out of darkness into God’s wonderful light
- You are going through a troubling times with the brethren, and it’s time to stand with the brave and not shrink back from threatening showdowns; be ready
- But don’t become angry with them, because if you do, you will be controlled by them
Tom Evans, NAD Treasurer was quick to point out the headquarters building is paid for, and the NAD still provides 60% of the money (tithe, offerings, and international entities that openly fundraise here) that supports the world church from only 7% of the world-wide membership.
