The Book Study change is for real

    Until now, I have been skeptical about the so called change in the Book Study meeting. However, maybe this anecdote proves me wrong. We (the elders) recently had a meeting. One of the elders asked if it was possible to create a new Book Study because his has enough attendance for two Studies. The P.O. laugh when he said that. I guess I was the only one who understood why he was laughing. He said, "maybe we could discussed that later". Then, about 5 minutes later he asked us not to miss Sunday meeting because there is a letter we have to read 15 minutes before the meeting starts. "That's all I can tell you", he said. So, maybe the change is a reality after all.

    Since I no longer attend the meetings, I won't hear the announcement made, so let us know what happens!

    They're going to read the letter 15 Min BEFORE the start of the meeting? Just curious . . . Is that a new thing?

    No, the letter is being read to the elders prior to the public talk.

    I see thanks for the clarification. I can be a little slow.

    hoohooohoooo I got to use that info on a Jdub today - it was fun - I told her they were going to read a letter to the elders tomorrow and there wouldn't be any more book studies - one meeting less. She didn't believe me which makes it all the more fun!!!
