COCONUT TIME: A RELATIONSHIP WHICH CONTROLS

COCONUT TIME: “You never know when the coconut will fall from the tree” Sr Pastor Albert Walker,pioneering founder Charity Mission, now living up in Heaven with the Lord
I first learned of the term /concept of COCONUT TIME from an African American Senior Pastor friend, who told the assembled congregation, “Today I will use my watch and not speak on COCONUT TIME…for you never know when the COCONUT will fall from the tree.”
I marveled at Pastor Al’s unique choice of descriptive words and found it captured the imagination. And we place this in the Taveau D’Arcy Lexicon as it pertains to a RELATIONSHIP…GROUP RELATIONSHIPS…And by describing illusive COCONUT TIME here, we may serve and assist a pioneering leader, parent, employer, entrepreneur and/or even a team leader.
We shall submit this TAVEAU D’ARCY LEXICON apostolic entry as a Selah in order to perchance help a pioneering leader, parent, employer, entrepreneur or team leader.
Later I applied COCONUT TIME to when I watched certain employees, volunteers proceed to have NO concept of being on time.
And I noted that this was a repeated, even regular pattern which revealed complete disrespect for their JOB, their OFFICE, their EMPLOYER, their SENIOR AUTHORITY, LEADER, PASTOR, and for ultimately the LORD by carelessly showing up whenever they “felt” like it. )
(AND when they are running late, they never even once think to call to inform the others..which means that all of the others, head leader included, are left hanging.waiting for the COCONUT to fall from the tree…meaning to travel, life one’s life on COCONUT TIME…reveals a human person who disrespects everyone else but HIS, HER very own SELF.)
TO THIS OVERSEER ELDER one of the WORST TYPES OF RELATIONSHIP NEEDLESS STRESSES, including BUILDUP….is repeated COCONUT TIME, as it is wearing, disrespectful, time wasting and SELF CENTERED..
…and to me personally, the equivalent of someone running down their fingernails on a chalk board. I say, “YOU CHOOSE TO BE COCONUT TIME in my OFFICE EMPLOY or HELPS /STAFF, WORSHIP TEAM ..and 3 strikes and YOUR HISTORY.”(NOTE: I repeatedly dealt with this myself in “rising junior, but very talented and gifted” FUTURE called leaders, supposed to be “staff.”… but even when up front respectfully, and repeatedly, upfront confronted, firmly admonished, they never ever heeded the God appointed office leader..and VERY WILLFULLY kept the ministry elder, leader waiting time after time after time…)

Supreme example: A senior pastor bemoaned the fact that one of the main worship team members would hold all of the other’s hostage by arriving “whenever”..sometimes up to 2 hours late.
COCONUT TIME reveals RELATIONSHIP DISRESPECT to all the others, but a big sign of CONTROL..and SELF INVOLVEMENT..as it completely disregards the LEADER, EMPLOYER, PEERS to “do his/her/perceived as “MY” “WE” “OUR” OWN thing.”
