I don't expect you will believe this, but the intention of a growing number in the School is that there will be a genuine meeting and that the truth will be acknowledged, followed by genuine reform. Forgive my scepticism...this is hardly the first time the School and St James have been called to ac...

Your experinces of SES predate mine by 10 years so it was very interesting to hear your account of Sunday School, youth group etc. Reading you posting makes me think there really should be a book - not another Secret Cult, something less about cult and more about all the experiences; humourous, stra...
