When was the last time anyone recalls hearing the word 'remnant', in meetings or conversation? Is it something still discussed? [I haven't attended in 20 years, so no idea]
When I was young we had one of the 'remnant' in our congregation in Burnaby, B.C. When I was 15 my mother asked me to temporary pioneer [or was it vacation pioneer?] for a summer, to encourage Br. Harold Franske, one of the 'remnant'. I went in service with him just about everyday. [ The only thing I can remember from that summer was him showing me how a good janitor puts a curve in a broom handle, over time, by bearing down hard. "That's how you really clean a floor. Pushing hard on the handle. That makes the broom head sweep better." He had a janitor business. He showed me the broom handles in his work van. They had curves in the handles.
Anyway, I would come home and think, " Wow! He's one of the 'remnant'. I'm working with one of the 'remnant'."
I can just imagine Governing Body member Mark Sanderson speaking with awe about the 'remnant' when he was younger. Now he are one. Must take the awe away when you are one yourself. Especially working with the likes of Morris lll and Lett.
