A UCG member brought this to my attention. Below has to be one of the most pathetic comments to come out of UCG in a while. There is so much wrong about most everything Vic Kubik said.
Its obvious their ministry is in sad shape. Older ministers are dying off or retiring and UCG has finally realized after 20 years that they should have been hiring younger ministers. Men with fresh ideas that are not stuck in pre-1986 models and who have new outlooks. The tired and worn out models of the glory days of the Worldwide Church of God are epic failures in the 21st century.
The same tired and worn out writers from the old WCG have been writing the same worn out nonsense for the last twenty years. These same worn out old men have produced epic failures in campaigns and other outdated practices from the past that have failed to bring in new members.
As usual, at the bottom of all COG lists is love and caring. Its a little too late to decide to love and care for your members when you have already lost over 60% of them to other splinter groups and continued attrition out of the church. When the law trumps Jesus every time, what more could we expect.
You will also be heartened to hear about how we are rebuilding our ministry, including the hiring of younger couples who are being trained to become the future pastors for our congregations. We are also actively training new writers for our blogs and publications. And, not the least in importance, will be our focus on loving and caring for one another, as this is the glue the bonds us one to another.
