    Last night they said a letter will be read on the mid-week meeting next week, during the Local Needs part.

    If that is the case, we should know by Monday night since some have the "mid-week" meeting on Monday.

    I had to dig through many boxes to find my Organization book. I discovered I had two different versions. One was published in 2005 and the other was 1983. I rarely ever looked at these books. I will show you a chapter listing of both. It looks like they started focusing on the “Faithful and Discreet Slave” title in the 2005 version.

    1983 version

    1. Organized to accomplish our ministry

    2. Benefiting from theocratic subjection

    3. Recognizing Christ’s role in God’s arrangement

    4. How the congregation is organized and governed

    5. Overseers to shepherd the flock

    6. Ministerial servants render valuable service

    7. Arrangements for regularly assembling together

    8. Ministers of the good news

    9. Ways to expand your ministry

    10. How the ministry is supported

    11. Holding to Jehovah’s righteous standards

    12. When difficulties arise

    13. A worldwide association of brothers

    14. Enduring with life in view

    Appendix: Questions for those desiring to be baptized

    2005 version

    1. Organized to do Jehovah’s will

    2. Recognizing Christ’s role in God’s arrangement

    3. Trusting “the Faithful and Discreet Slave”

    4. How the congregation is organized and governed

    5. Overseers to shepherd the flock

    6. Ministerial servants render valuable service

    7. Meetings that “Incite to love and fine works”

    8. Ministers of the good news

    9. Methods of preaching the good news

    10. Ways to expand your ministry

    11. Arrangements for places of worship

    12. Supporting kingdom activity locally and worldwide

    13. “Do all things for God’s glory”

    14. Maintaining the peace and cleanness of the congregation

    15. Benefiting from theocratic subjection

    16. A united brotherhood

    17. Stay close to Jehovah’s organization

    Appendix

    I’m guessing from the 2005 version that number 4 will have a change or number 12.

    4. How the congregation is organized and governed

    12. Supporting kingdom activity locally and worldwide

    They need more money and I wonder if they are going to start tithing.

    Did I miss what that "Big Letter" was to be read at the mid-week meetings in Canada?

    I think it had to do with a bunch of congregations being merged in Montreal.

    Thanks. I was just going by the original wording in this thread that stated the letter would be read "in Canada".

    That sounded like all of Canada to me but it may have just been a regional issue.

    I agree.

    It would be much more exciting to go outside barefooted on a really windy day and pee into the wind.

    I remember Christian Guitierrez saying when they made an announcement like that, he couldn’t wait, so he went on line to see if he could find out, and came up with Jwsurvey.org, this happened twice. He then started reading John Cedars website, and the rest is history.
