The CO is at my husbands hall this week so I tied in to the meeting he was going on and on about how there are 140 elders in the circuit and only 80 something MS's. Of the elders 25 are over 75 years old. Of the MS's it was about 20 are over 75 years old. His point was that the servants are getting old.
He then said that there should be double the MSthat there are elders so the circuit should have 280 MS's not the 80 something we have.
He then went on and on and on trying to quit everyone into being a MS.
To me it is just telling how the religion is losing people who want to be elders. MS's get dumped on that is why no one in their right mind would want to be one every CO knows that.
The CO then went on to actually name elders who are almost 100 years old and then some who truly for a lack of a better have word brown noised the CO's as examples for us to follow. I was like Oh please these people never have put themselves out pioneering or doing anything that did not make a name for themselves.
He is now going on and on about the news and how this financial market shows that we are so very, very, very close to the end. And then how we should never rush through our study of the WT as we should always find something new in everything we read from the FS. And he just mentioned that we should dig in the older publications in our studying for the meetings, he is impressed he just said when someone mentions something from say a WT from the late 60's. So what how about 1968 Awake on young people needing to face the fact that they will not get old in this system of things, I wonder if I can mention that one.
OK my dryer just went off so I am turning the phone off as I am starting to get sick.
