Do you think they will make a new type of field service overseer?

    Excellent questions.

    Some Kingdom Halls have 3, 4, even 5 congregations meeting there. Not everybody will fit into the KH for Saturday service.

    They'll have to still have meetings for service in private homes for Saturday at least.

    I think it makes sense to have a bunch of "service overseers" to replace the "congregation book study overseers". I iimagine the criteria for selecting them will be a bit different than for selecting the CBSO - the primary requirement would be "service minded".

    And how about shepherding? Shepherding has always been strongly encouraged at the CBS level - now with no individual CBS's, will the new "mini-service-overseer" also be in charge of shepherding his group?

    Very very odd....what would prompt them to shake things up this dramatically?

    I hope this poor integration comes back to haunt them. And I hope they don't think of these things until after it's too late--after they have had more than half the congregations turn apostate. Hey, it would solve the having 6 congregations sharing one Kingdumb Hell--if 2/3 of the people went apostate, they would only have two congregations left.
