LCG Weekly Update 09232016

Greetings from Charlotte,
Most of you have heard of the riots taking place in Charlotte this week. As far as we know, there are no members directly harmed by them, though a few have been instructed to stay home by the companies they work for. The Church Headquarters is far from the troubled area. This situation reminds us of the challenge we have as true followers of Christ to not get caught up in the emotions of worldly human affairs, especially as we know much worse is coming!

LCG Weekly Update 09022016

Greetings from Charlotte,
Dr. Meredith gave the sermon here in Charlotte last week, and it is being sent out as an important “must play.” Among a variety of meetings, he also reviewed speaking schedules for the Feast of Tabernacles. We recently replaced WGN with another Chicago television station due to changing circumstances with WGN that have caused its audience to shrink, resulting in a rising cost per response. The WJYS station is already pulling 58 percent more responses in the Chicago market at our 10 a.m. Fridayairing.

LCG Weekly Update 08262016

Greetings from Charlotte,

While floods, fires, riots and campaign rhetoric dominate the news in the USA, earthquakes rocked central Italy and shook sites along the Pacific Rim of Asia, and significant geopolitical events continue to reshape Europe, the Middle East and Asia (see News and Prophecy). Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith conducted a phone meeting with members of the Council of Elders and visited with our on-campus Living University students at a Faculty Reception. He will give the sermon in Charlotte this Sabbath. Mr. Glen Harrison reports that all of our brethren in the flood-ravaged areas of Louisiana are safe, although a number sustained damage to homes and property.

LCG Weekly Update 08192016

Greetings from Charlotte,

We had visitors here in Charlotte from around the world to meet with various departments. Mr. Martin Montgomery and his family, Mr. Lawdi Ferreira, Mr. and Mrs. Kinnear Penman and Mr. Stuart Wachowicz all left on Wednesday to return to Australia, South Africa, the Philippines and Canada, respectively. Most dropped by after serving at the Ohio Teen Camp, but Mr. Wachowicz made a short one-day trip from Toronto. Dr. Meredith was pleased to see them and be briefed on what is happening in their respective areas. The personal contact with these men and their wives helps us keep unified and on track. It is also valuable to share ideas and find better ways to preach the Gospel around the world.

LCG Weekly Update 07292016

Greetings from Charlotte,

A global affairs columnist recently noted that, in light of terrorist attacks in Europe, the political and economic uncertainty in the EU, the shootings in America, the conflicts in the Middle East and the tensions created by a resurgent Russia and China, “the years to come could be among the most dangerous in recent human history” (Reuters.com, July 26, 2016, “How Much Worse Could 2016 Get?”). Sobering news items like this certainly fit with the prophetic warnings in Matthew 24 and 2 Timothy 3, and point out the need for the good news of the coming Kingdom of God. Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has held meetings with Mr. Weston and various departments. Mr. Ciesielka reports that the positive trend with “Internet TV” is continuing.

LCG Weekly Update 07222016

Greetings from Charlotte,
It is remarkable how ancient prophecies indicate that as Israelite nations turn away from God, God will remove the supports of their societies and their impulsive leaders will “cause” them to err even as women rule over them (Isaiah 3:1-4, 12). Today, in more and more nations, we see women reaching for power and leaders in religion and government openly ignoring God’s instructions. Recently, the United Methodist Church (USA) elected its first openly gay bishop and the Republican National Convention asked a Muslim to give the benediction at one of its sessions. We will see more of these anti-biblical actions in the days ahead as our nations move further away from God. Here in Charlotte, Dr. Meredith has written a co-worker letter that has been mailed to more than 13,000 people. Mr. Weston began his duties as Chief Operating Officer this week in Charlotte and spoke to the office staff on Thursday.
