    I never encountered this as a elder, but if one that profess to be of the Anointed is too ill to attend the

    the Memorial do the brothers take the emblems to the sick??

    In the Baptist church( after leaving the borg) I was assign to take the emblems to the sick and shut in on

    the 1st of each month. I don't recall this happening as a JW.

    I actually know of one person who was sick for the memorial and he claimed to be anointed. He said that all he did was pray all night. The people in the congregation had some uneasiness around him anyway, so nobody really cared.

    I`m pretty sure that if someone was in hospital or otherwise through no fault of their own ,unable to attend the memorial ,arrangements were made for them to either observe it or partake of it , depending on what class they came under .

    And I`m going back as far as the 1960`s .That`s my recollection here in Australia.

    What should be done if there is an emergency on the night of the Lord’s Evening Meal? What if there is a violent storm or other major disturbance that would make it impossible for the local congregation to come together at the appointed time? (2nd col, 1st para, below)
