Mrs Mattieu went running out the doors with kids in tow (yes, I helped them get ready) in state of panic because tonight’s KM part is all about showing respect for being taught by Jehovah by being early to the meetings and how latecomers should be put before a judicial committee. OK, made that last bit up.
I used to hate these parts on being late to the meetings as most would judge the late comers without fully understanding their work/family/health issues.
I don’t have her KM with me, but it mentioned that being late is something that should not be a regular occurrence and that we should be early to sit down and be ready to be taught by Jehovah.
Not sure if this article is particular to the Australian KM or being used worldwide, though will try and scan it through tomorrow.
