Hello everyone!Just a little background info, I haven't been to a meeting in over a year. My wife has asked me to go with her tonight to help watch our son since it's the Circuit Overseers visit...my wife wants to be able to pay attention and get something out of the meeting since our son is 1yr old he can be a handful some times.
A few things of note about the situation:
- I'm going to the meeting no matter what. (Not trying to back out)
- My wife knows I'm an atheist and we have a mutual respect for each others beliefs. (sorta)
What I need from you all is some ideas of what should I say if people in the hall say the following:
- "We've missed you."
- "Are you going to start coming back?"
- "Wasn't that a wonderful meeting!"
Or any other saying I should be prepared for. If the elders or even the CO try to get me into the back room for whatever reason, I'm going to say "no"...after all, they have NO authority.
I want to respond to people in a respectful yet affirmative tone to their inquiries or sayings. Since it's the CO visit, I may record some of the talks to see if he'll say anything cultish. Recording would be nothing new since I've done it before:
Thanks for your advice!
