I heard that the CO who visited my old congregation last month, had said that they have been told that next September, they would not be changing Circuits as they normally would after three years.
love the frequent mentions of "persecution". This the buzz word for JWs
well the FDS cant exactly blame gas prices for all this. The R&F are gonna speculate as to why all this is happening.
Of course its not that the WTS is a giant corporation trying to fatten its bottom line. Of course its not that the cash cow is skinny due to lawsuits, lack of donations, low american dollar. Of course its not that brothers are not interested in wasting there lives pioneering and becoming CO's and DO's. No!It must be persecution!!!!!!!!! the end must be closer now than ever!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a need to prepare additional brothers to serve as overseers in case of persecution and isolation.
Presiding Overseers will be trained for additional responsibilities at Patterson Elders School.
After all Presiding Overseers have been trained and before this is implemented there will be a Kingdom Ministry school for all Elders.
Various Presiding Overseers from around each circuit will visit the various congregations in the circuit.
The visit of the Overseer will begin Thursday evening. Another meeting will be held Saturday evening and the public meeting will be on Sunday.
The Overseer will share in service Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with the congregation.
Additionally the Overseer will have a meeting with the local elders and pioneers.
Congregations will receive three visits per year instead of just two.
oh boy! can I be a PO??? I would get to travel to other congregations and deal with all their problems too! I would get to have even more work to do in whipping the sheep! even more elders and R&F would call me about all their problems!
Oh boy sign me up!! ------- okay folks, my PO is old and "fragile" - how long do you think it will be before the PO position starts rolling over every couple of years? and all those poor kids with a PO father.
"oh hello uncle dad, nice to see you!"
pioneer hour change is legit.
letters are being mailed out soon to all congregations for announcement in early october right before the tract campaign starts.. .
elimination of circuit overseers.
