Hassan Boyle has left a trail of questions in Dundalk, Co Louth, Ireland


We have been covering events in Dundalk and the sudden move of Hassan Boyle away from Grace Church and the arrival in Dundalk of his brother in law Thomas Cooney. We have reported on his involvement with the takeover of Abundant Life and working under Brendan Hade.


Last January we got wind of major changes in Dundalk and seemed to hit the nail on the head.
I had seen that a woman Angela Power-Disney had a video on youtube that after quite a rambling introduction tells the story which was covered up and had personal consequences for her.

The relevant section indicates that received evidence about Hassan Boyle emerged over a 15 years ago. This starts at 20 minutes
The cover up of adultery, harassment and sexual assault. Then financial scams and a massive cover up.
Angela outlines how this developed and it cost her her marriage and we see how she has managed to get on with her life.The story then only comes to ahead at the beginning of the year as the Church closes down.
She gave a further update in January, however, it is clear it was really not about her problems with Grace Church. I believe the issues raised in the other video are best addressed by following Matt 18.

Matthew 18

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a little child and had him stand among them.
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
“Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!
If your hand or your foot causes you to sin cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.
And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.
“See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. [1]
“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?
And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.
“If your brother sins against you, [2] go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.
But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that `every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ [3]
If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be [4] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be [5] loosed in heaven.
“Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?”
Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. [6]
“Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.
As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents [7] was brought to him.
Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.
“The servant fell on his knees before him. `Be patient with me,’ he begged, `and I will pay back everything.’
The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
“But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. [8] He grabbed him and began to choke him. `Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
“His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, `Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’
“But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.
When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.
“Then the master called the servant in. `You wicked servant,’ he said, `I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to.
Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’
In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.
“This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”

We are deleting this video as it has nothing to do with the thread on Hassan Boyle. Angela Power-Disney has made a number of charges against a local church which she had dealings with. We have only heard her perspective on it whereas, we have had confirmation from independent sources that the issues she sat on for 15 years in regard to Hassan Boyle are accurate. We in Dialogue Ireland would be willing to intervene and mediate between the parties mentioned in the video, but do not regard the use of a video as a way to act as judge, jury and executioner. We are not a Christian organisation but do have Christians involved who have over 20 years of dealing with such issues.
