I want you to know that I greatly support your efforts to shine the light of day onto the situation at 3ABN. Nobody else is doing it the way you are...with documentation. I realize you must be getting a lot of pressure to stop, but that's to be expected.

I have a question that nobody else has been able to answer. Maybe you can shed some light on this.

I've been following this ongoing saga for over two years now, and I have not seen or heard any indications that the church leadership are concerned enough to look into this situation and try to use their influence to bring a resolution to the problem.

Maybe they are, but are not telling us. If so, why not? Their silence seems to indicate an unconcerned diffidence. I'm perplexed and beginning to be frustrated about this "deafening silence" from the leadership in the face of what appears to me to be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the denomination.

Are there any indications that we may be seeing our leaders exercise some "leadership" pertaining to this situation?

Yes, there are indications. And you should feel free to express your concern to leaders that you know, which will possibly encourage them to either look into the matter or voice their feelings more publicly.

Not long ago, before the conference presidents' meeting, a friend of mine called a conference president and shared some things with him. That president was unaware of what was happening, and was initially surprised that his union president hadn't said anything. Then it dawned on him why he hadn't. Now since I wasn't on the line, I can't tell you all the reasons he could think of why his union president hadn't said anything, but it makes sense to me why he might not.

But that is changing, I think. There should be little political risk for our leaders to speak out now, and there should be enough info out there now for them to make an informed decision for themselves about what is going on.

I do know of a ministerial secretary in one conference that just sent out the AToday article on Tommy to various ones. I know of another pastor in another conference who got a copy of that email.

And then there have been two pastors in ****** that have forwarded to quite a few Linda's request that the evidence against her be made public. I know a pastor in ****** got it from one of those pastors, and someone in ****** got it from the other.

Momentum is building, and there are some things in the works that we will all find out in due time. And praise God that at this point it looks like all of this will not have the devastating impact on our church and mission that it looked like it could have had.


God bless.
