Last Sunday, our family went to the Kingdom Hall and I realized that this was the week that the Circuit Overseer was in town. When we sat down, I noticed he came over and talked to her then he walked away I guess to talk to others. A few minutes later, he returned to tell her that he could not talk to her because he was informed that she was disfelloshipped. Naturally my wife asked why he could not talk to her but the elders could. She said that it was not written in any books to which he responded, "Not everything is written in the books."
When she told me that he could not talk to her I said, rather loudly, "Why not, I thought he out ranked elders?" The whole "Not everything is written in the books" reminded me of one of my first posts here on the board and the irony of how that works when it comes out of the mouth of a Jehovah's Witness. It also reminded me of the super secret Elder's manual that has large margins for the "unwritten" rules to go in.
Does anyone know if even a Circuit Overseer (and above) are not permitted to talk to disfellowshipped people? What a goofy religion.
