    From the upcoming August KM:

    Beginning the week of October 28, 2013, the brochure Who Are Doing Jehovah’s Will Today? will be considered at the Congregation Bible Study. After completing this brochure, the book Draw Close to Jehovah will be considered (again, emphasis mine) beginning the week of January 6, 2014. Congregations needing a supply of these publications should request them on their next literature request.

    You read it here first.

    awh .. the books were the most enjoyable bit for me. I have to be fair, I miss reading them, but afraid to go near them now.

    I agree with you *lost,* I enjoyed studying the books for the book studies too. But once the book study was shortened and became a meeting part, all the fun went with it and it was easy to tune out.

    Yes another repeat book study just like the Revelation Book (3 times). Nothing new just the same old propaganda. I would rather stay home.

    earthfire: We have three 30minute meetings on tuesdays and 30 minute talk on Sunday followed by the Botchtower study.

    Pretty safe choice. Not much doctrin in the Draw Close book. Gives them 9 months to get the presses grinding out books with current truths.

    Not much doctrine. Just a shit load of rules & regs for "mature" "true" "genuine" 'lovers of jehovah'.

    Yea, love how they count each section as separate meetings. JWs love them big numbers. 1+1=5.

    Who Are Doing Jehovah's Will Today? - Why we are of course. For next weeks study please prepare the answer - Why we are of course.

    They always have counted them as separate meetings (even back when I was a kid and remember meetings 57 years ago)...usually separated by a song. Begin and end the evening though with a prayer.

    No prayer before public talk at one time...so not to offend visiting non-jws. Not even a prayer before the Public Talk at the convention/assemblies.

    Oh Blondie - what about way back when - when they had a 10 -15 minute intermission.
