Former WCG member's book claims Diana was assassinated

A book by a former WCG member is making waves in news markets in several countries around the world.

Paris-London Connection: The Assassination of Princess Diana by Australian John Morgan argues that Diana did not die in an automobile crash in 1997 in France but was assassinated after the wreck.

Mr. Morgan believes Diana was murdered by a department of the British government.

Queen's counsel Michael Mansfield, who served at the six-month London inquest, is quoted in the book:

"I have no doubt that the volumes written by John Morgan will come to be regarded as the 'Magnum Opus' on the crash ... that resulted in the unlawful killing of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Al Fayed and the cover-up that followed."

Mr. Morgan, who for six years investigated the crash that injured Diana, also wrote Flying Free, about his life in and exit from the Worldwide Church of God.

Paris-London Connection is available at for $13.50, or $5 for the Kindle edition. Write Mr. Morgan at

Henk Jens actually does count Pentecost

BELMORE, Australia--The Journal erroneously reported in "Notes and Quotes" in issue No. 150 that Henk Jens doesn't count Pentecost.

Mr. Jens explained in an E-mail that, although he believes Pentecost always falls on Sivan 7 on the Jewish calendar, that doesn't mean he doesn't count it.

"I count those 50 days similar to Judaism's Shavuot Sivan 6, only I count exclusively from the Wave Sheaf Offer day to reach Sivan 7," he said.

"Believe me that I had to count 50 days to Pentecost, as undoubtedly did Joshua when Israel entered the Promised Land."

To follow Mr. Jens' reasoning, see his paper "P4" at his Web site,
