The instructions for the new meeting entitled "Our Christian Life and Ministry Meeting" indicate an interactive portion that takes little preparation and a great deal of media involved components, demonstrations and instruction. I am sure not all congregations are setup for all the video feeds, especially in developing nations. Will this divide cause jealousy and strife within congregations and branches as the lag continues?
The dumbing down has met epic proportions. A coloring book for adults? Glad I missed it. How do you see the effect of all this hype? Is it only entertainment to keep them coming?
Here are more instructions from the recently released Oct. 4 BOE:
Our KM is being replaced by a new four-color, eight-page monthly publication entitled Our Christian Life and Ministry—Meeting Workbook (mwb).
Each Life and Ministry Meeting will begin with an opening song and prayer followed by comments from the Life and Ministry Meeting chairman. ... When the scheduled weekly Bible reading begins a new Bible book, a brief video introducing the book will be shown at the start of this part.
