    From what I understand, a letter was read this past week in regards to congregation reassignments and that the elders want to meet with people at their homes to tell them where they have been reassigned. Obviously, this would be due to the merging and dissolution of congregations. Can anyone confirm this?

    In the end, I suspect people will continue to attend wherever the f*** they want to attend. "Assigning" publishers to different Congs has NEVER worked.

    I guess they would be "encouraged" to go to a certain congregation.

    I have heard that announcements are being made at this week's meeting.

    That's pretty unusual, to have the elders meet in the homes.

    At the convention, the video that showed had a list posted at the KH and everybody crowded around to see where they were assigned.Presumably that is the standard model.

    My guess (if the above is really how it is being handled) is that some, or a lot, of the reassignments might be viewed as "controversial" and they are hoping to avoid a "scene" at the KH.

    From what I heard, many of the friends are not happy. There has already been several mergers in my area of Ohio. It sounds like the org is reshuffling the deck.

    The "personal touch" may be getting invoked to prevent potentially outspoken "evict-ims" (see what I did there?) from causing a scene when they read the letter on the notice board.

    I distinctly remember years ago the distress voiced by some when the book-study groups were "re-arranged."

    Growing at an ''accelerated'' pace yes. The work is indeed being ''sped'' up.

    Wonderful expansion is a loving provision from Jehovah bullshit.
