Just in case someone wanted this letter for their records. (2016-1-25-Applause)
People in my congregation did that anyway for as long as I can remember.
We have another BOE from Greece which reads the same with the same date.
Just don't get too carried away with the applause. If you do, you'll end up being part of the "Over-clapping Generation" that jesus "evidently" was referring to in Matthew!
We have starving people in the world and WT is worried about clapping? Laughable!
Couldn't the GB have provided more helpful guidance on how long and loud "Christian" applause should be? Perhaps a soundtrack with exact specifications?
More detailed guidelines would remove any lingering uncertainty.
Clearly, to the more sensitive JWs in local congregations, this letter will elicit an increase in theocratic fretting.
Steve2's sarcasm is right on the button.... How controlling can they get?
Next thing, a digital sign, "clap now" - , " stop clapping"..........
Thank you Atlantis, for your confirmation..
on the Italian blog: proclamatore consapevole, they mentioned also this same letter.. A few days ago..
But like mentioned before this is a typical example of a flip flop situation..
They are loosing more and more credibility by thinking publishers
