Last night my parents came around for dinner. Mum is a JW, dad is not. Things were going fine everyone was getting along nicely.
Mum happened to mention some people she knew who want to go to Gilead. With out even thinking I straight out asked her: "What is this I have heard about Bethel laying off around 1500 of their workers in Brooklyn?"
She gave me a blank look. Then she goes something about they have moved the printing presses to Australia Bethel now and that's probably why. Then she said that Brooklyn Bethel are trying to keep things simplified.
So again without thinking I said well if they are keeping things simplified why on earth would they be constructing a new building in Brooklyn?
She said she has no idea. I saw that she was astonished because she had no idea that this was going on. And more astonished that I did know. Anyway she says she will find out for me. She has bookstudy tonight and she is going to ask her conductor who I think is either the Presiding Overseer or the Service Overseer. I am interested to see what he says.
Luckily she didn't ask where I got my info from...
