"Mama" & Peter announced a 4 months long hiatus from publishing GNs, until the end of April,to concentrate on what they call "The Change Journey". Until then they will publish reading packages of older material so their poor members do not die of spiritual starvation.
They're being put on methadone while the heroin flow is interrupted.
I must say, everyone is waiting with bated breath as to what they may cook up. It seems that some of the changes already made (birth control, education, employment) will change the Family very significantly. Everyone is wondering how much of the control mechanisms they're willing to drop. Meaning the long overdue removing of membership classifications, which have been the reason for much confusion among the young people.
I think Z&P are trying to emulate the RNR and stirr the pot quite a bit this time. Of course, to think that they may drop the tithe is ludicrous - they're not gonna cut off their life line. I'm also not aware that there was any vote by which 3/4 of the members rejected sexual sharing - and I'm pretty up to date.
Also, it is my personal guess that the "monarchy" will not be done away with, it's too deeply ingrained into their culture. And Maria just loves to be queen, let's face it...
I'll look at your site and see what's there. If anything is missing I'll email it to you.
