Change program — the times are a changin

This isn’t news within the Family International but I wanted to link to this post that the Family International’s spiritual leaders gave at CESNUR earlier this year. This article provides a nice summary of the current direction and changes with the family. So without further ado please see: CESNUR presentations.

It’s a long but worthwhile read if you are interested in the direction that the family is headed and haven’t had a chance to read about the “Change Program” — Here are a few quotes.

Perspective on the Second Coming Considering the future of the Family and the change this will entail led Maria and me to discuss the time frame for the second coming of Jesus Christ. We ultimately conjectured that this may not occur for another 30–50 years.

Our intention is to bring about substantial change within the Family. We are after significant differences from the way we have thought and operated in the past. We want to unhitch the Family from anything of the past that hinders us from fulfilling our mission, our core purpose.

Another miracle of protection

Since we are just getting started I think some older posts are still fair game. Here’s another miracle of protection The Guatemala Adventure

“GET OUT OF THE CAR!!! OPEN THE DOORS! ABRE ABRE ABRE!!!!!!!!!!!”

The six gunmen with flood-lights glaring in our faces yelled in unintelligible Spanish as they surrounded our van. They’d pushed us off the road in their red pickup, overtaking us on a small country road just after dark.

Always amazing how the Lord gives us grace for the hour and protects his own in even the most dangerous situations.
