The italics part was my suggestion, but in talking to Harold
the second time, he said that he felt my suggestions could be
incorporated without stating them as I did. He especially felt
that if any non-Christians were interviewed, they might not want
prayer. That seems reasonable to me. If God wants the prayer
times spelled out, He can intervene. I've seen that for sure.
ASI has been asked to develop a process for addressing issues
between 3ABN and some of its personnel, specifically the appropriateness
of the divorce of Danny Shelton and Linda Shelton and the remarriage
of Danny Shelton. The matter has been addressed by the ASI Executive
Committee who has authorized the further exploration of the possibility
for its involvement in the process. The Committee has asked
that Harold Lance explore further and report back with recommendations.
The following are some preliminary considerations for a process
of inquiry to be discussed by the ASI Executive Committee and
later to be submitted to 3ABN, Danny and Linda Shelton for their
A group of five persons to consider the issues will be
selected by ASI, with input from the parties, and will not include
the current officer leadership of ASI. The gender representation
of the group will have no more than 3 men and no less than two.
The same is true for women. The persons chosen will be selected
for their reputation of fairness, integrity, spirituality and
their lack of any stake in the outcome. When first selected,
each person of said group will be set aside in a prayer of anointing
for wisdom, discernment and power over evil, in full measure
by the Holy Spirit. Each person is to verbally and in writing
accept the responsibility and confidentiality as outlined herein.
He/She will pledge to pray daily until the meeting takes place
for personal purification and baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The place of the meetings to be at a neutral site in the "area."
- The costs associated with the process will be paid by 3ABN.
3ABN, Linda Shelton, and Danny Shelton will be contacted
for their input on the process and on basic ground rules.
Each side will state in writing what they consider the
issues are that need resolution and their belief as to the facts
related to those.
Each side will state in writing what they think would be
a proper outcome on the issues.
The meetings will start with a group prayer of all persons
involved: each party, witnesses and ASI Group members. The meetings
will be private, not recorded nor open to the public. The members
of the Group may take notes. Said notes will be purged after
completion of the process. The parties will not be involved
in a process of public discussion, through email messages, news
releases or announcements on matters related to the process.
Each side may have a representative present during the
taking of information, but not during the group's deliberations.
The representative will not be a lawyer or one acting as an
advocate but as a facilitator of the process and will be identified
to ASI in advance in writing by the party. The person selected
will be the person who will work with Harold Lance, on behalf
of ASI, in arranging the details of the process. No volunteers
or intermeddlers will participate in the meeting processes involved
in making arrangements.
There will be prepared in advance a defined schedule for
the proceedings and the sequence of the process with input from
The questionings of persons brought in for information
on issues will be done by the ASI Group moderated by its Chairperson,
not by the parties or their representatives. The parties or
their representatives will have opportunity to submit to the
ASI group written suggestion areas of inquiry.
Any party wishing to furnish written documentation for
consideration will have seven days in advance of the meeting
to furnish a copy to ASI for distribution to each party.
Before the scheduled meeting, each party will submit to
the Group a list of persons they plan to present and a factual
summary of expected information. Said persons are to pledge
by word and signature strict confidentiality regarding the meeting
process and its existence. The Group will pray with each party
and "witness" for clarity of mind, pureness of heart and openness
to God before his testimony is heard.
The purpose of the process will be to bring clarity and
truth based upon factually accurate information and perceived
guidance from the Holy Spirit. The meetings will not be as a
When all parties are done presenting their information, the
Group will have prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and
begin deliberations. Upon completion of the process, the ASI
Group will promptly issue a written statement to ASI as to its
factual findings and upon those findings define suggested recommendations
for the "parties," as ASI recognizes it does not have authority
to order or award anything. The value of the process for the
parties will be that an independent, fair-minded panel will give
its best judgment as to the truth of the matters under consideration
and recommendations for resolution of the issues.
BE IT KNOWN TO ALL INVOLVED that God alone is the "Restorer
of the Breach." By accepting this assignment as "liaison," ASI
is but a tool in the hand of God to accomplish His purpose.
May His name be exalted as a result of this process.
