I do bible study and attend meetings.
I was away in another city last weekend (short holiday) and told the Bible study conductors I’d try to attend a meeting there. Was looking forward to seeing another hall as I’ve only been in one in our own city. In the end I didn’t make the meeting as I’m disorganized and I messed up trains but then it’s a city I don’t know. It happens, many of us get lost even with google maps.
Monday lunchtime I was sitting in a park reading football news on my phone and chilling from my job
A pioneer sister came over and a bit of chit chat, sunny day, where you live, oh I cycle around there, etc.
”I didn’t see you Sunday”
”well I was away and I was going to attend in that city”
”I didn’t see you. So important to attend meetings. Satan will try to get back in if you don’t”
”well I was on a weekend holiday and I told my bible study conductors and “ <interrupt>
”in these end times it’s important to attend meetings “ and on she went
chat ended with some ramble about bus routes home
I did everything right, I told my bible study conductors in advance and genuinely I wanted to see another hall. Now I’ve been scolded.
My attendance is better than many of the baptized members.
