I was a born-in. KH meetings were utter hell. The boredom, particularly for a child, was awful. I feel it was a form of child abuse. A Bethelite handed my mom his belt because my toddler sister was brushing her feet against the chair in front of us. Meetings were agony. The boredom.
Sometimes I wonder if I just had special temperament problems. I am sometimes bored in church now but, overall, it is very different. Do true believers find meetings exciting? I suppose the very beginning might be exciting when you learn new ideas but the tedium should set in. I just want to check my experience with others. Of course, maybe we are the oddballs for being here.
