before him is a devouring fire,
and a mighty tempest all around him.
4He calls to the heavens above

지금이 당회들이 조금 힘들어 하며 신음하는 시간이다. 통계를 내야 하는 계절이기 때문이다. 당회 연례 통계 보고 (SASR)에 관해 가장 자주 하는 질문들 중의 하나는 “왜?”라는 것이다. 간단한 대답은 이것이다. 규례서는 해마다 교회들에게 통계들을 노회에 제출할 것을 규정하고 있으며 (G-3.0302e), 총회는 노회들에게 그들에게 속한 교회들에 관한 특정한 데이터를 수집하라고 지시하기 때문이다.

Las lesiones resultantes, incluyendo la muerte de cuatro de los reunidos para la adoración, son actos inadmisibles que agravan las peligrosas tensiones, ya que afectan a la ciudad santa, y empujan lejanamente las perspectivas de una solución pacífica
