LOL @ MrDoBee!
pssst wombat, there are a few of 'the remnant' posting here. I kid you not! (bunyips loose in the top paddock).
In the early '70's we had a new brother arrive from Germany. His english wasn't that good and I remmember hearing the PO ask him "and you're a baptised brother?" ..."Ya Ya" ..and you are a ministerial servant?" ... "Ya Ya that I am" .. "so you can give Service Meeting talks?" ... Ya that is no problem, I can do everything"... "OK I'll asign you some responsibilities until your papers come though"
Anyway, this fellow gives service meeting talks and even one part of a symposium. When the memorial comes he partakes of the emblems and the jig is up LOL. (some new pioneer sisters were very upset with my father who approached him after the service and inocently tried to make some joke about his crew cut saying.."you've got high hopes haven't you?!". Mum insisted we have them over to dinner to show we weren't barbarians lol.
