No, I don't mean the visit by Oprah.
There was a special talk on Sunday relayed to all the Aussie congs from Sydney. Apparently the speaker had an American accent, but was stationed in a latin American country.
He was really pushing field service and pulled out the old one that: If you do not witness you are not one of Jehovah's Witnesses. Then he said:
"Just as tithing was compulsory for the Jews, field service is now for JW's."
Did any fellow Aussies on JWN hear the talk or have further info? Was the same talk given in the US?
