    From the letter...

    In order to generate enthusiasm for the Memorial, the special talk will be presented one
    week before the Memorial, during the week of March 19, 2018.

    Could Watchtower be trying to control the number of partakers? I would bet you dollars to donuts the talk includes information on not partaking of the emblems. That has gotten way out of hand and has become an embarrassment to the Organization.

    What is the hang up with the GB of JW`s about the word "special" ?

    Whats so special about a talk dealing with special when their is nothing special about it ?

    Why, they are just so special, my goodness.

    ... think of it... special talks for special occasions!

    (Even if they are the same talks for the same occasions, only special. Same special but different. Sort of.)

    Because, you see, the special talk could be given AFTER the special occasion; and now the special talk can be given BEFORE the special occasion!!

    Is this not the incredible work of the almighty creator's own hands and mind?

    Think of the scope and magnitude of such momentous announcements and arrangements. Incredible, I know!! I mean, who thinks of this brilliance?? All to the almighty's everlasting praise, of course.

    Please see Jehovah's very own, special website for more details.

    What about a new special arrangement where the partakers all sit on the platform so everyone can watch them partake. Now that would be special...or not.

    May discourage casual partakers though.

    Note to speakers:

    "The special talk will especially focus on the special point that only especially chosen special ones can partake of the special memorial emblems on the special night of the memorial. Take special note of this special point please. This note is especially important for the especially chosen special speakers who are assigned this special privilege of delivering this special talk."

    Your special bothers.

    The GB.

    If you are swimming far from any shore in a vast and featureless ocean-- and a turd floats by-- that is special!

    Doubly special if it has a little JWorg flag planted in it.

    Wifibandit, I bet they will send a public talk in a video format. That will get the message to be the same for everyone and controlling everything they say. Control, control and more control!
