News to share with the Streetcar community regarding Gladys Barlow:

Gladys is dying with multiple brain tumors. I have no inside information as BCF close ranks.

I thought to post this out of respect for Gladys.

Gladys Barlow has been a brutalized victim within the BCF community for decades. I first knew of her punishment and isolation in about 1995 or 96?

Gladys did nothing to deserve the way she was treated by those heartless, cruel men and it was all orchestrated by Vic and Lorraine Hall.


This may be an opportunity for the readers of this forum to pay tribute to Gladys. (Obviously it will never be passed on to her, but we can still honour her here.)

Gladys traveled with her husband Ian, to many country areas within Queensland and Victoria. Ian preached, and Gladys was a tower of strength and wisdom to many people, especially women. She listened to people, understood people's lives and struggles, and offered practical and compassionate thoughts and suggestions.

Gladys had a lovely sense of humour which disappeared later, as the men tore her to pieces. They shamed her, belittled her, isolated her, denigrated her and Ian did nothing to protect her from those bullies. Gladys bore all that humiliation and victimization, with as much strength and dignity as she could.

The elders at BCF spread lies about her, attacked her and criticized her unfairly and the entire BCF congregation did nothing to support her, stick up for her or protect her. I include myself in that list, (to my shame) and I remained silent in the face of such cruelty.

Today, I wish to honour Gladys publicly and pay tribute to a lady of grace and courage.

Bless you Gladys. May you find comfort and peace in these last days on earth.

Thank you for all your did for me over many years. You helped me to stand in my own faith and dignity.

Farewell Aunty Gladys. Though I've seldom spoken with you, the few times I did, you came across to me as warm and friendly. I pray we'll meet again on the other side. For now... in memory of you, I dedicate these words to you, taken from the third verse of that old beloved song, 'Because He Lives'.

And then one day, I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain,
And then as death gives way to victory,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives.

See you again soon, Aunty Gladys. You've crossed the river, and you've finished life's final war with pain. I am sure your death has been replaced with victory, and that even now as I type these words, you are rejoicing in the light of His glory. Until we meet again.
I stand for the Light, and justice shall be done. - Arthas Menethil

I am so sorry to hear about this.

Condolences to Ian who I remember meeting in the nineties while attending a computer aided design convention in Brizzy ( I wrote for "Multi-CAD" Magazine) and the same week and a bit I met Doug, Alex, and several others who I felt I had established a friendship with. Maybe not so, though I felt Doug who I was sure as a fellow engineer would have done a great job as Administrator.

Sadness all round. Ian please accept my condolences, if they ever reach you.

Lord bless us all, and keep us safe, as that passage in Numbers 6 describes.

BR we need to talk my friend.

A sudden thought.

WHY oh why was it held at ANY BCF venue?

I'm absolutely serious.


There would surely be somewhere where brotherly love would be free flowing.
When the UCA was formed from the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches in 1977 (from memory), in most states a "Continuing" Presbyterian Church was created from those whose congregants voted "No" to the Union.

Surely the Barlows would be received lovingly there?
