    "Bearing Thorough Witness" About God's Kingdom (2009)

    It's a "commentary" on Acts of Apostles with lots of application for modern day witnesses today about the preaching work.

    I'm no longer up to date on the meetings schedule. Wasn't the book study scrapped, and replaced with a family study night? Also heard rumblings of shortened Sunday meetings.

    If somebody doesn't mind...what is the new weekly schedule? Thanks.

    "Book Study" had the name changed to "Congregation Bible Study", was merged with the "Theocratic Ministry School" and "Service Meeting" (which were both reduced by 10 minutes each to make room for the 20 minute congregation Bible Study). Unfortunatley it's not really a Bible study, it's still a book study, and you still look up the Bible texts to "prove" what the book says.

    The Sunday public talks are now 30 minutes.

    Those are the best changes the Faithful slave has implemented recently :)

    Do both these meetings (the one on Sunday and the other during a weekday evening) go for 2 hours? If they are shorter what was their reasoning?

    Meeting times are still the same, but the Sunday meetings 15 minutes shorter because the public talk is 15 minutes shorter. I don't rememer ever getting an official reason for the shortening of the talk.

    If you heard the quality of the talks given in my hall you'd know why they were shortened. It's a good thing I'm deaf in one ear and can't hear in the other.
