I had to go look for this one, as I thought FB would alert me (I had a tip-off). Peter Hawkins of the UK United Church of God (UCG), an International Association resigned Monday from the ministry of UCG.
He somewhat addresses the continued question of why the ministry did not try to work it out privately with the COE:
The issues causing this rift have been misrepresented in Q&A sessions to members that we have heard. What was needed was a humble response to private letters of concern last year. Well over the 25% of elders also signed a petition to the Council to reconsider what had happened in Latin America, and instead of being allowed the opportunity to have the matter discussed, threats of expulsion for causing division were issued.
He then repeats that threats of expulsion were made even though denials to the contrary were being circulated.
