I didn't enjoy having the study at our house because people came with their sick kids and we would all get sick..also they would want to stay and chat and I had 3 kids to get to bed so they could get some sleep before waking up at 6 am. Hubby had to get up at 4 and that meant he could maybe get right to bed after they usually left..9 pm..and maybe get 5 or 6 hours of sleep. Not to mention making sure the 3 little ones didn't make a mess of the house and getting dinner for all and cleaning up and setting up the chairs..
Then we also had the Ministry school and the Sunday meeting and field service and book studies..it was too much..way too much. But good for the WTBTS as they wanted to keep their followers close so they could control them..
I studied for the meeting but rarely felt "spiritually " uplifted after the study.
As far as the money goes..it didn't cost them a penny to have book studies in peoples houses..it actually saved them money..
As far as suing goes I would think any injuries would fall on the homeowner..
Snoozy..soooooooo glad to be out of it all..funny how you see it all so clearly after you get out of it!!!
