Default "A Brief History of the Lord's Move in Europe"

A Brief History of the Lord's Move in Europe (September 2017)

Quote:
Welcome to a brief presentation of the history of the Lord's move in Europe. We encourage you to spend time to read the introduction located on the home page.

Please note that due to the nature of this website we would ask you not to download or distribute this material.

We hope you enjoy this brief presentation and that you will pray for the Lord's continued blessing on the one accord among all the saints and churches in Europe.

The following compilation was prepared for the October 2017 International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones in Leipzig, Germany, and the blending trips and conferences involving eight regions across Europe the following week.

It was compiled between June 2017 and September 2017 using existing materials and interviews and updated with new interviews and reports from saints across Europe. Since this presentation is in the nature of a compilation of recollections of the local saints, the amount written on each area was based largely on how much information was received in the time available.

We apologie for any items which may have been missed or which are inaccurate due to the speed with which the materials were compiled.

This compilation is not exhaustive concerning the Lord's move in Europe. There are other European cities and countries that are not included here since their history is more related to the Russian-speaking churches. This compilation focuses on the countries hosting the blending trips and the regional conferences so that visiting saints joining the local saints can have some sense of the present situation. Nearly all the content came from the saints in these respective countries. In total, the geographical population of Europe is more than twice that of the population of the US.

This compilation is prepared for all who are participating in any or all of the three events occuring from the 5th to 15th of October: the International Training for Elders and Responsible Ones (ITERO), the blending trips in nineteen European countries, and the eight regional conferences being held in Copenhagen, Denmark; Thessaloniki, Greece; Stuttgart, Germany; Krakow, Poland; Florence, Italy; Paris, France; Madrid, Spain; and London, England. In principle, there are eight conferences, but there is only one content and one speaking.

We hope all of you enjoy this brief presentation and that you will pray for the Lord's continued blessing on the one accord among all the saints and churches in Europe.

Conveniently expunged John So and all the other precious saints from their history?

Kind of like how the Darby Exclusive Brethren blotted out Benjamin Newton, George Muller, and others who rejected their domination.

A word to the wise. No history coming out of LSM has ever been anything but self-serving historical revisionism.

Maybe that is why it called "a brief history" rather than a "comprehensive" or "complete" or "accurate" history.

Conveniently indeed. It would be more appropriate to say "History of the Lord's Move in Europe in the 21st Century".

The funniest thing is how this document cites Lee and only Lee so heavily on each page ("then as Brother Lee points out"), as if he was the only person to cover the history of the Reformation. As a church kid, I was so surprised visiting Amish, Moravian, etc communities and finding that their recountings were pretty much identical to the ones I had heard attributed merely to the insights of the great Lee. Until the 20th century, which belongs exclusively to Nee and Lee, of course. Actually, the bias in this history is not funny, it's repulsive.
