The new midweek meeting has been running for a month now. Here are my thoughts on how it is going so far:
1) Elders are looking frazzled from being on virtually every meeting and having to prepare unfamiliar formats for items. The congregation isn't much better.
2) The talks/demos are already boring and repetitive - are they really going to have first call/return visit/bible study every week?
3) There is no longer any room for any form of individualism - even the questions are assigned for the bible reading - it is like having an oral review every week. The only meeting with any non-scripted comments now is the public talk. How long till that gets cancelled?
How's everyone else finding the new meeting?
