Hey, did anyone notice this point from the WT study article for this past weekend (paragraph 2):
Certainly, Jehovah is pleased to see that so many attend the Memorial. (Luke 22:19) However, Jehovah is not primarily concerned with the number of people who come. He is more interested in the reason for their coming; motive matters to Jehovah.
A few months back there was a big thread where a poster wrote that "reporting hours will be going away".
No idea if the source of the rumor is reliable - but assuming it is:
Most on that thread interpreted that as meaning "no more reports from individual JW publishers to the congregation secretary".
I think it more likely means "Even though reports will still be collected by the congregation, the congregation no longer sends the numbers to the WTS and the 'annual report' (including Memorial attendance) will no longer be published".
If my thought is the accurate one (again, assuming the rumor reported in that thread is true), then the statement from this week's WT study would seem to be dropping a hint that we can expect the "annual report" to go away.
Anyone agree? Disagree?
