I just wish you had expanded it more in the Heb. All those 'leaders' in that denomination refused to fellowship with anyone except other pastors or elders, and perhaps a very few exclusive friends. They were always talking about the sweet fellowship they had with one another and complained to the sheep of the infrequency of their fellowship because their fellowship was only with fellow pastors and elders at their bi-annual 'pastors' weeks of prayer' It doesn't wear well It is, in their view, just the nature of sheep that they wander away from what, to them,is the Great Shepherd they have exclusive access to Him, we are told It is so unlike Christ the real Shepherd who seeks after those who have 'wandered away' and brings them home I once said to one pastor how unfortunate for him that he limited his fellowship to twice a year when he had a congregation with whom to fellowship and who would enjoy the interaction One of those pastors ministered to a very large congregation for over 25 years and then 'moved back home to another country' as if they meant nothing to him.
This just proved to me and to them that he never was their real 'under shepherd' but was just a manager doing his job. Many hearts were broken when he left because they had not understood his cold detachment was natural to those like him who see themselves as an elite force rather than as friends.
