Oh no....one less 'privilege' for brothers to reach out for
No more literature counters?
Perhaps they are short of brothers now?
Balaamsass2 - "Perhaps they are short of brothers now?"
That's been a problem for a while, now, so I'm sure it's a factor.
In the last congregation I attended in Poland, there was no literature counter. They put your stuff in you little cubby (name labeled) and you picked it up (or didn't). Probably another way for the more holy to judge you - Oh look at that Bro S hasn't picked up his mags in several weeks, he must be weak. We should avoid him.
As opposed to: maybe we should call Bro S. I haven't seen him in a while.
Note: you can't bring their mags to them, they have to pick them up (from what I last heard)...
