BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — REV. JULIAN CRAWFORD — Hi Naked. I am asking you to please help us at St. Bartholomew Church for our priest is out of control. Naked, I don’t know where to start but I will highlight some of the crazy things that happens at our church.
First, I thought the church was a place where the Diocese was in charge and therefore should be accountable for our affairs fortunately this seemed not to be the case cause the Reverend Julian Crawford would not stop letting the congregation know that she is the CEO and don’t forget that she can act as Donald Trump when it comes to firing people. Is this the act of a leader?
The church took on some repairs and I must say the congregation at St. Bartholomew would do anything to support the church however the priest is taking a 6 for a 9.She asked for money to repair the church, however this was given but before she did the repairs she repaired the rectory first, changing windows that were not broken and painting up the house. I believe that the church being that it is the Lord’s sanctuary should be top priority but Reverend Julian stated because all the people in the church got big houses and think that them is somebody she can show us that has she can the same also. Then she started to demand more monies from the congregation to fix and donate windows and doors to which they had already donated which we think is a total misuse of power. The congregation wants to know how much the repairs cost but Reverend Julian said she will let them know when she is ready. This is now the second promise that we had, the first was how much money the Fair made for no one knows and she said she don’t have to answer to the people of St. Bartholomew Church cause she is CEO.
Now, low and behold she went and took off all of the Mothers Union money from their account and opened a separate account with her and Maria Wooding. When the treasurer went to check the account, it was closed and money transferred. The poor lady wants to know how it is that she and the president didn’t sign anything and the account closed without her knowledge. Could it be that she had one of our church members who is her acquaintance that works at the FCIB First Caribbean Bank, go in and withdraw the money? This scenario caused such distress on the poor lady she resigned immediately from the group. Why have a secretary treasurer when she can be overridden at any given time?
Additionally, we had a case of the money that was collected from the 7:00 am Sunday morning service disappearing from out the vestry, but someone who wants to remain anonymous said that the priest took it up and to date she has not addressed the matter or the money has not been returned. Someone who has to abide to the laws of the Lord does this? What does Exodus 20: 15 state again? “THOU SHALL NOT STEAL”. The treasurer Ms. Sivers from the PCC council is giving the priest the authority to be the only person allowed to sign on cheques, so once again cheques are being written to Rev. Julian’s personal account and she thinks it is not being noticed. But fortunately for us, we have other members who have copies of the said transfers.
What really hurts is that the priest married Maria Wooding and they both go out with all kinds of different men although Maria Wooding is supposedly happily married woman. As a leader of the church Reverend Julian Crawford should be telling her friend Maria Wooding Ephesians chapter 5: 22 which states “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the Church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the Church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands love your wives, as Christ love the Church and give himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word.” Now after seeing this, don’t you think a true friend should give her direction in the right path instead of leading her astray? I personally wouldn’t want a friend like Reverend Julian. A friend is someone who sticks closer than a brother. Moreover, Maria Wooding is on every committee in the church, and if you call the rectory the priest will tell you hold on and call Maria Wooding to listen in on your calls because she got three way calling. How can the congregation confide in a woman who calls herself a woman of the cloth and simple person conversations are recorded. Would you believe that the priest and Maria Wooding went to Miami last week to go shopping for Maria Wooding birthday with the Church funds, and then she took a leave of absence stating she will not be coming church after she get smash at the party… so the church had to pay Rev. Merlene Lucas to preach. How can a leader of the church, who supposes to set by example, do such a thing?
Now there is this foolish woman name Wendy Maughn, she is the Priest pimp that does run to her every need, kiss ass you name it, for the priest she is The Messiah but she got it good couple weeks ago. Her daughter Juliana Maughn who also helps her mother at the church had a baby and the priest embarrassed her in front of the godparents and other parties stating she is not christening the child and told her that Wendy is like a headless chicken that has no sense. As the bible states there is no condemnation and personally you shouldn’t be judging people only our Heavenly Father is our righteous judge. That’s why there’s the book of life where he would judge both the living and the dead at Judgment Day .Would you imagine this is the same woman who literally kissed her ass and her own daughter had to go to another church of a different denomination to have the child christened? Luckily for her the church welcomed her with open arms. It is only at this stage that Wendy found out everybody at St. Bartholomew has been calling her and her mother idiots.
Naked I could go on and on but I will end this with this other madness, Rev. Julian getting $600.00 every month to go around and give commune to the shutting but she don’t go, she is too scornful saying some people house too dirty and she isn’t sitting down in no one dirty chairs and basically she doesn’t care who does but she would not be the right candidate. Would you imagine these old time members who never missed a day at church while they were capable still sends their tithes and offerings on a monthly basis, just to be scorned? Every year she does summer church and have different organizations preaching while she sits and listen. So she is getting paid to do absolutely nothing.
The men fellowship gives religiously to the church but not at any given time are they ever acknowledged, because of the man that dumped her in the group. She has these dumb ass people Like Rapheal Coppin, Nurse and Collis doing her dirty work and these men too stupid to realize that she using them, but God don’t like ugly and Ugly coming Rev. Julian very soon and very soon if the Bishop don’t do something fast and help us by removing her. Her policeman that she got sleeping in there with her might have to investigate her for theft because the evidence is out there. Also, why a man should be sleeping with her when you preach about 1 Corinthians 6: 18-20 which states “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside of the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against their own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” When I think about it, that people like Margaret Stephen a police Inspector and Margaret Sivers that in charge of BRA have big posts and letting this thief do as she like I feel sorry for my church. All I require Naked is good leader, guidance, a place to worship where I can receive a good word. Quite frankly, this is not being exhibited by Reverend Julian Crawford. Please Help. Anonymous

BRIDGETOWN: During the time of slavery in Bridgetown, Barbados, it was the custom to torture a slave or slaves if there was a runaway. Most of the times a pregnant woman was chosen. She would be hung and then the unborn child would be ripped from her womb then crushed by the boots of the white man. All this was done in front of the other slaves to cause fear (NOW DOCILITY) and prevent more runaways (NOW LABOURERS). Post Traumatic Slave Disorder is real in Barbados. Naked Departure
