Can you ever remember someone talking about a Watchtower article or anyother publication
yes i did
but that was because i used to read them...(as someone said - i was a pioneer so i had plenty of spare time)(to be fair i didnt have children tho)
i was just as comfortable talking about spiritual things as i was about sport tv music news travel...or whatever somebody else was interested in.
generally when elders were together (when no other cong members were around) they would talk about cong matters meeting parts someone who needed counsel (rarely someone who needed help) gossip gossip ...but now you mention it seldom wt articles or bible understanding
