    Hardly anyone talks to them


    Remember well "street corner" work of days long gone by

    Just wanted to do something meaningful/helpful with my life

    This religion really sucks

    I was about 10 years old

    Doing "street corner"

    Guy was pleading with me

    C'mon go play baseball or something

    He was nice

    We were good kids

    @fastJehu: I already have a fulltime job but have no work on saturdays and sundays. So maybe I will have to find another excuse.

    As some have said, the problem is I'm still a MS. For the moment I can't step down although already thinking about moving to another congregation this year and not accepting my appointment in the new congregation.

    I was thinking about the OP question


    You're an MS you have to do Carts if you're available

    It's like Service Groups of old

    You have to accept your assignment to take them if you're available

    Goes with the territory

    The Glorious Ones wallow in their positions as elders, so suggest to them that they "exert themselves" to take the lead in the art of "trolley zombieism."

    (Hebrews 13:7) "Remember those who are taking the lead among you....."

    (Hebrews 13:17) "Be obedient to those who are taking the lead among you...."

    Regardless of when you stand down as a mini-servant, the reaction from your family is definitely going to be the same, so why prolong your agony?

    Bite the bullet, and save yourself having to provide different reasons for quitting pioneering and then quitting as an M.S. Simply give one answer for both - "I'm having to deal with private & personal issues - thanks for your concern."

    Skepsis why don't you be honest and say you cant preach the teachings of the Watchtower Corporation anymore because you found them incorrect and tainted with commercialism.

    If you do come back here and tell us what the Watchtower Corporation did to you after that proclamation.

    Go for it skepsis, just sit there with your cart and read Crisis of Conscience and if anyone's interested recommend they read it as well.
