Most LCG members know nothing about this because LCG doesn't bother to tell them.
As we keep the Holy Days, many from the Charlotte office have been travelling, including Dr. Meredith to Houston, Mr. and Mrs. Ames to Michigan and Ohio, and Dr. Winnail to Northern California. All told, we are blessed to have 238 ministers conducting Holy Day services for 375 congregations spanning the globe! Rod McNairWhile LCG members seek to understand what REALLY is going on, this has also created disconcerting speculation in UCG. COGWA is made up of huge break-off of ministers and members from UCG who because disgusted by the shenanigans that Vic Kubik, Webber and others were pulling. Now for these former brethren to be saddling up beside Rod Meredith as a slap in the face to the most perfect Church of God this side of Wadsworth.
Many in LCG think Meredith is trying to do all he can to forestall a major split in LCG once he dies. LCG members can's stand this son who was at one time was the heir apparent but who has now turned out to be a bumbling money squandering dolt. LCG members are not fans of Richard Ames or Gerald Weston. Many see Ames as getting old and senile like Meredith while others see Weston as perched and waiting to usher in a hardline stance that makes Meredith's legalism pale in comparison. LCG members have chaffed under this abuse for two decades and they won't put up with it much longer. With membership and income in decline, a unification with COGWA may just be the lipstick the pig needs for a couple of years.
