Some of the older dubs have many handwritten notes in their Bibles and won't want to start again.
That is true, a sister in my congregation is still using her 1960 'Green' NWT, full of underlining and annotations.
The invites to the AGM has caused quite a bit of controversy in my neck of the woods. All elders, wives, MS's and Pioneers get an automatic invite. In addition to that 'certain others' have been selected. However, Brothers & Sisters with 60 or 70 years faithful service have been left out. They are not well pleased.
Interesting that oppostate has seen the new Bible. Let's hope he can get a picture of it on here before October.
