'You Must Come Back!'

People have told me gently, many times, that I should return to my city Church. This morning, it was an aggressive encounter. I met one of the congregation on the promenade. She said: "You must come back to us." I said: "That's not in my hands." She said: "Listen to me when I speak! You are not listening! We want you back!" OBSERVATION: I spelled it out for the Church, what was coming if I would go. Most Church groups closed, and income from members sank. The Church is now, as ministers call it, in "maintenance mode". When I predicted it, an elderly member angrily challenged me. On what basis could I say that? I said, too, that unless God intervened, this may continue for one generation.
