For those who are interested, the following changes were announced yesterday at the AGM
1) MTS school has been done away with
A) in its place two new schools have been formed. One is for Single brothers. The other is for married couples. Further details will be forthcomming
2) In what can only be described as an effort by the branch to further tighten the grip, DO's will now have a shephearding program, designed (IMHO) to keep THEM in line. Now with each CA someone from the branch will come and observe the DO. THis will evidently include visiting with the DO to whatever congregation is host for that week. The branch brother will also attend the CA and observe there, offering whatever council he feels is needed. Clearly a move to bring DO's in line. It just got harder for everybody, again IMHO.
Of course clowns like littleburger, cantleave and mosche should not read this since they dont care.
