    Well tonight i was at the meeting and i got really pissed. During the local needs part the gave the C.O.s report of the congragation then the PO started harping on the fact that 50% of the cong is low hour publishers. He started saying how we need to keep up with the avg of 9.6 i looked over at my dad and he looked so sad. I hate the way they make him feel so small because hes only able to do a couple of hours a month. On a positive note i got to talk to the elders and postpone the Baptism Questions(Praise the lord) To my suprise they didnt try to convince otherwise just said when i am ready i can let them know. I am so grateful for JWD it gives me a place where i can talk about my feelings with out being judged. Thanks for being here guys Ex-smoker

    The 9.6 hours per month is an AVERAGE figure. Normally, half would be above that figure and half in the group would be below. Although where I was there were enough high-hour publishers so that the MAJORITY of publishers were "below average".

    It's just statistics. They should be happy people spend any time at all spreading that boring literature around.

    your poor dad - breaks my heart. Kiss the old dear for me, and let him know how valuable he is. God I hate those crappy people for making everyone else feel "less than."
