The proposal made by the SSEC superintendants to form alternative National SSEC church structure if Rev. Maeliau is elected Bishop, in my view, reflects spiritual deficiency in church leadership. I am not here judging my brethrens, for am not worthy to do so. However the sadest thing that the news reveal is that if leaders spend time looking horizontally with suspicion at each other than vertically for guidance & direction from the Spirit then there is little point in having someone as leader. Someone once said that "a good leader is someone who is led." I think this is more apt in the 'church' context in that Shehpards should be led by the Spirit in order to lead their flocks to greener pastures. Nevertheless let us commit our SSEC leaders in prayer for direction in their forthcoming election for a new Bishop.
