The watchtower meeting (This congregation meets on Sat) that I just listened to via phone conference was cut 10 minutes short to have a letter read to all the congregation. Here are the highlights:
- The governing body realizes that the pressures of this system of things are getting heavier on his people.
- Just like the governing body of the 1st century, we do not want to add additional burden to YOU either
- Burdens such as the cost of oil worldwide and also lack of attention to our families
- Some of our fellow brothers and sisters have left the truth
- Some families are known to come unprepared to the meetings and also not having time for a family study either. The following arrangement should fix those two issues.
- Therefore, the governing body has decided to rearrange the meeting scheduled as follows
- As of January 1st 2007, the book study will be called the congregation study and will be held in the same night as the theocratic school.
- This congregation study will last 25 minutes, followed with 35 mins of theocratic school and 30 mins service meeting. The entire meeting should last 1 hour and 45 minutes.
