This topic, from Wierwille the Patriarch thread.....
......[Geer's Passing of a Patriarch paper] "The final Way Corps location was not at all what we had anticipated. It is located in an area that is far removed from easily accessible transportation. It is also in a very difficult part of the British Isles to facilitate business needs, and perhaps worst of all, it is isolated from any large groups of believers. Our primary choice in England would have had good transportation, easy access to businesses that we had long dealt with and been close to a majority of the believers in Britain as well as being far more accessible to the majority of European believers."
The blundering onward of bad decisions......1) Gartmore was far removed from easily
accessible transportation, 2) it was very difficult to facilitate business needs,
and 3) it was isolated from any large groups of believers.
So, this was NOT AT ALL what geer and leadership had anticipated....er, believed for.
What? Geer failed the most basic of pfal-premises??? Needs and wants must be parallel.
The things that Geer NEEDED and WANTED were not parallel, or consistent, to sound principles
of business and/or impacting culture with the Word.
The Church Epistles DOCUMENT epicenters of outreach in cities like Rome, Corinth, Ephesus, etc.
Why would you move to an isolated area.....somewhat removed from people and commerce?
What objectives did you embrace [or violate] to arrive at this juncture?
....[POP paper quote] "We had lost the original location in England that we had selected because our own Way Corps graduates were not capable of handling things involved in getting a location. They just collapsed under the pressure. The increased difficulty in doing business in a remoter area of Scotland made me glad to have the extra time to prepare for Dr. and Mrs. Wierwille's visit."
Why were corps grads put in charge of "getting a location?" Who sends in underlings
to do MAJOR decisions and/or negotiating? And, notice....how quick Geer is to blame others.
NEVER FORGET THAT. It is the modus operandi of vpw and co.
Remember....corps were blamed for not stopping the rain at corps week.
....[POP paper] "There were massive things that needed attention immediately upon our moving in. There had been very little maintenance to the roofs and gutters and as a result there was considerable leakage in any event of rain."
1)Massive things that needed attention immediately.
2) Roofs, gutters, leakage needed maintenance.
WOW......who missed all these details?
Who blundered onward with more blunders piling up?
....[POP paper] "There was almost no hot water and the heating was very poor. We either froze or boiled, and if we boiled we did it at a great cost. There was so little hot water in fact that for quite a while we used the showers adjacent to the large gymnasium in the Knox Centre to shower, which meant walking across the centre of the campus in robes and towels in the wintertime. "
OMG.....detail, after detail. Geer's paper is A PUBLIC ADMISSION for all to see
that these people have no credibility to lead others!! NONE.
And.....this is supposed to be a "training center for leadership?"
....[POP paper] "When we accepted the decision to locate the Corps in Scotland, we had to evaluate whether Chris and Nancy Kent could handle the United Kingdom from Scotland or whether they would have to stay in Altrincham to be central to the country. Finally we decided that with the percentage of our work that was in the southern part of the country it was too much to tack on the additional drive to get to Manchester, let alone from there to the south coast. It became evident that for the work of the Ministry it would be more expedient to leave them in Altrincham. That left us without the man whom we had felt could handle our Way Builders and without Nancy whom we had thought would have been able to handle our bookkeeping."
The blunders keep piling up....all because of THE DECISION TO LOCATE AT GARTMORE.
Now, they've got to figure out logistics of leadership, personnel, et al.
Heck, it's what UPS or FedEx people DO on a daily basis.
Geer and his bumbling buffoons have NO BUSINESS trying to lead others.
And, this is the guy who set up all kinds of franchises for his classes??

Okay, One More....just to emphasize Blundering Onward
....[POP paper] "When we moved into the facility, there was one telephone which worked only sporadically. We had selected a telephone system to replace the single wall phone that existed upon arrival, but due to the costs involved and other factors we had decided to run all the internal cables ourselves."
One. Telephone. That. Worked. Only. Sporadically.
OMG.....I can't stop laughing. :biglaugh:/>/> :biglaugh:/>/> :biglaugh:/>/> :biglaugh:/>/> :biglaugh:/>/>
