Does the link take anyone else to an article on a low-flying FBI plane?  Are there elders on board?

Using the allegorical method of interpretation, perhaps the low-flying plane represents the Holy Spirit, Who is every-present and watching us when we least expect it (represented by the flight occurring at nighttime). Thus, elders should remember to consult the Spirit before making decisions on church discipline . . .

.....is how you inculcate a culture that avoids groupthink?  Maybe if no one ever takes you to task for something you say, maybe you've got a problem?
