    Maybe there is a need for them to relax this "only people with a penis" qualify for privileges.

    It almost seems like they are saying "now that we cannot use the field report as a cheat sheet, we will need to get to know the flock better." I wonder how many MS and elders will resent actually having to become engaged with the rank-and-file instead of just reading some numbers and throwing a bunch of Bible verses at people.

    “…How to shepherd and appoint brothers based on the removal of the hour requirements…”

    What if an elder or Ms has a ubm and no family in? How will they treat them?

  • carla

    I used to think they treated my jw as, "poor brother x, his wife is an opposer and he remains loyal blah, blah..."

    Now I wonder if they will say, "brother x has had what? 20 years or so and still no family and his wife is still an opposer and persecutes us!"

    KM school talks including wives will simply be thanking them for sharing husbands with org and encouraging them to support husband's position. People here are over thinking this

    The Watchtower would have had a lot of feedback about the changes in regards to those they have removed or disfellowshipped. The Elders don’t like visiting/harassing them because they only do it when there is a CO visit.

    It also takes a lot of time and requires two brothers.

    Now they’ve ramped up the number of visits, it’s a huge ask.

    It would make it easier if the Elders or Ms’s wife could go instead of the second male. It would cut their work, maybe by a third.

    Will the wife be allowed to talk to the dfd JWs, even though the rest of the congregation can’t?

    It’s not like this is a completely new position for the wives since they have been assisting Elders in visits in the past, particularly when it’s been more convenient, although they are not privy to discussions, I don’t think.

    Thanks for the screenshot. I will bet it is a mother yearning to talk to her DF daughter who is (naturally) down on luck. The angels are watching, the gesture is ???.

    Is that really a Watchtower cover? 🤔
