“Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them,

and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

But it shall not be so among you:

but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto,

but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:25-28, KJV)

The word the Athenians used for their Assembly was Ekklesia, the same word used in the New Testament for Church
(and it is the greatest philological irony in all of Western history that this word,
which connoted equal participation in all deliberation by all members,
came to designate a kind of self-perpetuating, self-protective Spartan gerousia -
which would have seemed patent nonsense to Greek-speaking Christians of New Testament times,
who believed themselves to be equal members of their Assembly.)

Why did the Salt Lake County Fire Department and the Questar Gas Company emergency crews show up,
after business hours, at 5:45 o’clock pm, at the PE church offices  ??????

Is there a secret room where computer and communications equipment is stored ???  
Where is the secret room ??? Who has access to the room ???  What is the reason for the secret room ???

Was there any community activity taking place at the time, which needed to be evacuated
because of the extreme danger of a blow up ???  Any youngsters around ?????

Why was there someone surreptitiously drilling the walls at the Prophet Elias Church offices
attempting to install computer and communications’ equipment ????  Was the person licensed, bonded, and/or otherwise qualified ??????

Whose permission did “this someone” have to drill ??????

Was it performed in secret because someone directed that it would be done thusly ?????

Who directed that it should be done in secret ????

Why was the natural gas line punctured when the drilling occurred ????

Is there any nefarious activity taking place without the knowledge of the Parish Council,
or the parishioners at large ??????

Do we have a rogue among us ??????

Did the Parish Council know of the installation ??? OR things are back to normal ????  No-one asks, no-one tells, everybody pays the damage !!!

Did the Parish Council authorize the scope of the work or any activity related thereto ????

Is the Greek Orthodox Church of Greater Salt Lake covered by any insurance,
when somebody drills in the  Church’s office walls ????

Who is going to pay for any damages ????????

Did any such person who actually drilled (and whoever else may have directed him to so do),
have any insurance in place protecting the Corporation ????

Just wondering !!!

tonight at the parish council meeting,the proistameno of Prophet Elias only,will answer all these questions to his "obedient bunch".
Lets not forget that they have taken an "oath",so they have no choice but to cover for yet another time the doings of their master.The other choice is a mass resignation and a
Big "i am sorry" for what they have done to this community.Their leaders are obviously OUT OF CONTROL.
On a second thought maybe they were drilling for oil??

Why St. Sophia's school was not evacuated? Did the proistameno of Prophet Elias only notify them???

I'm certain it was just another miracle.

Along with the Fire Department & Questar being summoned to Prophet Elias, the County Sheriff & U.S. Marshals should have been called, and criminal charges should have been filed.
