It's unconfirmed and it may be nothing more than a rumour but it seems that the Congregation Book Study may be about to see it's demise. I think this could have a very positive effect as far as the Watchtower is concerned for quite a few years.
The mood will be lifted. There will be a whole new evening of freedom and the brothers will be happy for it, don't underestimate the goodwill this will generate. Attendance at the remaining two meetings may increase a little as might field service hours. The novelty value of not going to the meeting on Tuesday night will last for years! (How long was it after you stopped going that you forgot it was a meeting night?)
What will the congregation be thinking if this is announced at the Kingdom Hall? The teens and twenties will be thinking; "Great! We can go to that gig/football match/party." The 30-40 year olds will be thinking "Great! A night off from the kids, we can snuggle up in front of a movie or get some friends round for a drink." Perhaps only the old timers will have some reservations about seeing the Society atrophy in this way - but most of them will also be grateful for the break.
But. If these rumours are true, the Watchtower Society is about to relax its strangling, choke hold over its members. BIG MISTAKE GUYS! Attrition like this can almost never be reversed, what will you do in twenty or thirty years time when the old apathy, malaise and stifled expectations have once again caused the brothers to 'stall'?
All in all I think this is a clever, if obvious, move by the Watchtower. But it's a 'Buy Now, Pay Later' option and the pain is yet to come.
