At the Regional Convention (national!!) for Scotland, Mark Sanderson elicited 13 rounds of applause during his closing talk, (for the least little things!) plus a final one for his closing prayer! And the grin on his face showed that he was loving every bit of it.
J.W.'s are now prepared - en masse - to applaud anything, if just one person initiates it, especially so when a member of the G.B. pauses and looks expectantly at the audience after making an insignificant statement.
I was seriously embarrassed for my fellow adults around me who didn't have the courage to follow my lead and do nothing!
J.W.'s in the past have ridiculed some Pentecostals as being "clappy-happy" - now they're following suit!
