Default Does anyone know who is the main person/people in LSM these days?

Hi

The Morning Revivals are based on Conferences.

Does anyone know who is the main person/people in LSM these days who (i) decides what the Conference should cover (E.g. who decides that in 2018 whether we should be having a crystallisation study of Ezekiel) (ii) who actually writes the Banners for the training? Or the Message Outlines? (iii) who decides which excerpts of WL's books to be put in the Day 1,2,3,4,5,6 of Morning Revival?

Ron Kangas runs doctrine & Benson Phillips runs organization.

Great questions micah6v8!

I think what our last guest has posted is probably a very accurate short version answer to your first question. I think a more comprehensive answer would come if we actually knew who made up the full complement of "Blended Brothers". Obviously, Kangas and Phillips could probably be considered "first among equals. At one time Andrew Yu could have been considered as a Blended Brother of the first order, but I understand Yu has had significant health issues. (I also understand he has recovered over recent years...praise God for that)

At Lee's death, I assumed we would find out about who has the reigns of leadership by noting who were the main speakers at the bi-annual trainings in Anaheim. I think this may have held true in the late 90s into the 2000s. I believe the main speakers were Ron Kangas, Andrew Yu, Benson Phillips, Minoru Chen and maybe a number of others such as Dick Taylor. I believe all these brothers were on the Living Stream board of directors.

As far as the message outlines and the training banners and the like, I think they are just carbon copies straight from the speaking of Witness Lee. I could be mistaken about this.

I would add Ed Marks to doctrine and Andrew Yu to organization, although you've identified the key people.

Because of declining health, Benson Phillips, Andrew Yu, and Dick Taylor have all not been speaking recently.

The current lineup of speakers is usually: Ron Kangas, Ed Marks, Minoru Chen, James Lee, and Mark Raabe (added in the last few years). I've also seen Ricky Acosta being added recently.

James Lee is also one of the speakers at conferences.
They rarely say anything that isnít Lee rehash though.
