Playing Time



This recording begins with a Brother Briley describing his disappointment in not being able to preside over his district churches. Dell says that many did not recognize him as looking over the district. They talk about various churches and the pastors, and who should oversee them. Dell asks that they work together, and the other man is skeptical because he heard that Dell is trying to take his congregation. They talk about church administration, appointments within the church, and finance issues, and how the temple and the state conference may not be able to exist together.
